Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 572643
preupgrade image can't find efs on LVM on Raid
Last modified: 2010-06-28 11:41:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When doing an upgrade from fedora 11 to 12 using 'yum install preupgrade', etc., after rebooting, the upgrade cannot find the file systems: efs4 in an LVM partition, on a RAID 1 partition across two disks. It simply announces that it can replace the existing system, not upgrade it.
Note: I had this problem a year ago with upgrading FC10 to FC11, and filed a bug (that I can't find). It had the same symptoms. But when I tried it again yesterday, it found the LVM partitions and did the upgrade. Now when trying FC11 to FC12, it has the same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install preupgrade
- no partitions found
- system should find existing root partition.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
