Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 587919
Upgrade fails with fs type ntfs-3g in fstab
Last modified: 2010-05-01 20:40:57 EDT
Description of problem:
If a line in fstab has the filesystem type set to ntfs-3g instead of just ntfs, anaconda halts due this exception when an upgrade is attempted:
Exception: fstab entry UUID=36D4BFBDD4BF7DA5 is malformed: scanned format (ntfs) differs from fstab format (ntfs-3g)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt to upgrade a Fedora 12 installation to Fedora 13 (I used preupgrade) while a ntfs volume is contained in /etc/fstab with fs type set to ntfs-3g.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change fs type of a ntfs volume in /etc/fstab from ntfs to ntfs-3g in the existing installation
2. Attempt to upgrade
The installer halts.
Installer should start upgrading the system (as it does when the mentioned line in fstab is set to ntfs instead of ntfs-3g).
