Description thomas.bartschies 1999-10-07 06:16:45 UTC
On my system are 4 partitions. /dev/hda1 is ext2 mounted as
/boot. /dev/hda2 is NTFS. /dev/hda3 is ext2 mounted as /.
/dev/hda4 is linux swap. Installed is RH 5.2. Every time
I try to upgrade, anaconda fails with a message box
complaining about invalid mount flags for /dev/hda2. If I
switch to the log console, there are many python script
errors. Then the setup hangs with the message box
"Searching for Linux Installations".

I assume the problem is, that /dev/hda2 is recognized as
OS/2 HPFS and that the setup tried to mount it that way.
