preupgrade's defaults to images/install.img: should be upgrade/install.img
Last modified: 2013-03-13 16:41:29 EDT
Description of problem: when I upgraded from F13 using preupgrade,
it failed to find the suggested image name, because it was using images/install.img (perhaps that resolved to /var/cache/yum/preupgrade/images/install.img? I'm going by memory). It should have searched for upgrade/install.img. It would have been nice if it were able to tell me which partition to look in. I had 7. Luckily I was able to determine that the desired image was on the separate /boot partition and that that corresponded to /dev/sda2 in the pull-down list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: at least once
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create 7 partitions (separate /boot) on a GPT partition table
Install F13 and bring it up to date.
2. run preupgrade
Actual results: preseeded .img file name is incorrect
Expected results: should be the one that preupgrade just wrote.
RFE: make the menu default to the proper partition number so people don't have to guess
Discussed with Jim on IRC, but will mention it here as well.
I asked Jim to ...
1. Retest with the latest preupgrade packaged used for the recent test day. This doesn't appear to be available on F13 yet, but is available at http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/fedora/13/i386/
2. After running preupgrade, but prior to rebooting, provide the /etc/grub.conf file
3. Also prior to reboot, can you also list the contents of /boot/upgrade (find /boot/upgrade should do)
4. After rebooting into the installer, any anaconda log files (/tmp/*log) may also be helpful. However, I suspect the results from the previous steps should provide enough information.

That directory contained the install.img file.
However, the UI proposed to search for "/images/install.img".
Once I found the proper directory name (upgrade/, not images/) and located the required partition, it worked fine.

Not sure when I'll be able to retest, though.
