Description of problem:
I'm running system version 6.2 on machine with Adaptec 2100S SCSI
controller and 2 SCSI disks configured to hardware RAID-1.
During upgrade to 7.2 installer claims that it found existing system on
partition /dev/i2o/hda8. But one step after confirmation "Upgrading the
Red Hat Linux installation on partition /dev/i2o/hda8" it says:
"Error mounting device sda8 as /: No such device. This most likely means
this partition has not been formatted. Press OK to reboot your system"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to upgrade system under described conditions.
Actual Results: Upgrade fails
Expected Results: Successful upgrade procedure
I suppose problem can be placed in kernel modules. In system version 6.2
I'm using Adaptec module dpt_i2o that works on devices /dev/sd...
But in system version 7.2 there are i2o_block, i2o_core and i2o_pci
drivers supplied and these modules works with devices names
This is most likely related to bug 57501.
