Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5622
6.1 erroniously does not find linux partiions on upgrate
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:38:26 EST
I have a dual boot system with win98 and 6.0. I booted your
6.1 disk, after selecting upgrade it said no linux
partitions found. Just to check I then selected install
and fdisk, which found my linux partitions. Also on
rebooting I was able to boot into 6.0. I tried this
So your install/upgrade program is broken.
We will need you to post a copy of your current /etc/fstab from your
6.0 installation as well as a copy of what fdisk -l lists.
Do you have any Win98 extended partitions on your machine? These
would appear in fdisk as type "f" . . . there are known problems with
these partitions and a fix is being distributed the week of October
