Description randy.schrickel 1999-10-22 02:44:51 UTC
Similar to many other bugs entered on the installer - begs
the questions - was the installer ever tested and _when_
will they be fixed so I can finish my upgrade?

Upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1 from local hard disk.

Get to the point of the dialog with "Searching for..." after
selecting a device and directory to install from. Get the

Error mounting ext2 filesystem on sda1: Invalid argument

Then the traceback:

/usr/bin/anaconda.real line 225 in ?
  intf.run (todo, test = test)
/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py line 1000 in run
  rc = apply(step[1](), step[2])
/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py line 222 in
  parts = todo.upgradeFindRoot()
/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/todo.py line 1130 in
/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isis.py line 8 in umount
  return _isys.umount(what)
SystemError = (22, 'Invalid Argument')

install exited abnormally....
you may safely reboot...

The disk it was trying to mount - sda1 - is *not* an ext2
partition, it's an NT partition.
