Description Tobias Mueller 2010-06-16 21:40:06 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to upgrade using the preupgrade tool. It installed itself to /boot/ and I clicked the "reboot" button in preupgrade.

The machine booted into the installer but bailed out that /dev/sda1, where /boot/ resides, was not clean. I expected preupgrade to shutdown cleanly (or take special care of /boot/, so that booting to the upgrader works flawlessly).
I manually fsck()ed the filessystem and rebooted.

This time, the upgrader complained about the swap not being activatable. I have a LVM setup in an encrypted container. I also have 8GB of RAM which I think should be sufficient for the installer. So I expected the upgrade to just work fine, even without swap.

Also, it's *very* annoying that it reboots automatically and does not offer a "recheck" or "skip" button. I could have added swap manually.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-11-03 13:08:33 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.

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 12'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 12 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: 

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 13:50:09 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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.
