Description Toralf 2001-11-20 14:58:33 UTC
Description of Problem:
Migration of existing file systems to "ext3" failed when upgrading to Red
Hat Linux 7.2.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot installer from CD or floppy.
2. Fill in the correct details; I'm assuming you know what to do.
3. Select "Upgrade Existing System" when asked for installation type.
4. Enable migration to "ext3" file system for "/" and "/boot".
5. Take the rest of the steps necessary to start installation.

Actual Results:
Anaconda dump.

Expected Results:
Installation starts

Additional Information:
Main board: Super Micro P6DBE
Disk: Seagate ST39102LW on Tekram DC-390U2W SCSI adapter.

Installation starts if file systems are _not_ marked for migration to ext3.

Comment 2 Toralf 2001-11-20 15:10:50 UTC
When not marking filesystems for migration, installation of all packages was
successful, but I got another crash during boot loader installation. The system
subsequently wouln't boot, but I managed to get it up and running by creating
/boot/grub/grub.conf, then issuing /sbin/grub-install (after chroot to
/mnt/sysimage) in rescue mode.

Also not that e.g 'tune2fs -j /dev/sda6' failed with message
   The filesystem already has a journal.
The system started successfully after changing "ext2" to "ext3" in /etc/fstab,
then rebooting.

Please attach your /etc/fstab file.

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-02-13 03:19:08 UTC
Could you attach your original lilo.conf as well?

Comment 7 Toralf 2002-03-01 07:34:41 UTC
It's long gone, I'm afraid. There wasn't anything special about it, though; just
the default installed by anaconda modified for kernel updates.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-06 23:05:34 UTC
Due to the fstsab not having all 6 fields
