Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-10-20 13:31:48 EDT
I am doing an FTP upgrade of a RH7.1 system. There does not seem to be a
way  to abort the upgrade. Even when it truns out that there is
unsufficient space to perform an upgrade, there does not seem to be a way
to tell it not to perform an upgrade - the only choice I am presented with
is to go back and change some options.

Of course i can always do Ctrl-Alt-Del and just reboot a machine, but in
this case the filesystems will not be cleanly unmounted, which is
especially frustrating in the presence of bug 54839 (my ext3 filesystems
are mounted as ext2 by the installer).

This is basically a dupe of #54841 in that there's no way gracefully get out of
an upgrade that can't proceed because of lack of space.  I'm going to dupe this
against 54841 because fixing one bug would fix the other.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 54841 ***
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2001-10-24 11:16:23 EDT
I disagree. This bug asks for an "Abort upgrade" option that would cleanly
unmount the partitions and halt. Bug 54841 asks for an option to change the
"upgrade with default set of pkgs" into "upgrade custom set of packages"
*without* having to restart upgrade.
