Description Julian Weißgerber 2010-05-01 15:02:12 UTC
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):
anaconda 13.39

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
The installer halts.

Expected results:
Installer should start upgrading the system (as it does when the mentioned line in fstab is set to ntfs instead of ntfs-3g).
