Description john.dean 1999-10-13 14:19:17 EDT
On attempting an FTP upgrade from RH6.0 installed on /dev/
hdb1, the installer seems to try to mount /dev/hda1 as root
and fails (of course).

The error occurrs at the "Searching for RedHat Linux
installations" window and reads as follows:

Error mounting ext2 filesystem on
hda1: invalid argument

Clicking OK brings up an exception occurred window that
contains the following text

t.py", line 222, in __call__
	parts = todo.upgradeFindRoot()
o.py", line 1130, in upgradeFindRoot
s.py", line 8, in umount
	return _isys.umount(what)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid Argument')

On selecting OK the installer then exits abnormally and the
system halts.

Please send me a copy of your fstab as well as output from fdisk.
There are a couple of issues we are familiar with that affect the
installer, so seeing these files will help troubleshoot the problem.
