Description Kai Engert (:kaie) 2010-11-05 11:29:08 EDT
I can't preupgrade from f13 to f14.

What I did:
- run preupgrade
- get a warning "/boot is on raid, need to fetch during upgrade"
- continue
- reboot when prompted
- notice that installer asks me to set a hostname and a password,
  which indicates it's trying to do a full install (I don't want that! :) )
- I give up preupgrade and reboot to normal setup

What I have:
- F13 on i686
- / is ext4 on software raid /dev/md3
- /boot is ext4 on software raid /dev/md2
- /home is ext4 on luks-encrypted on software raid /dev/md0
- another ext4 partition on /dev/md4

(I don't have /dev/md1 in case you're wondering.)

I use encrypted swap and tmp, my crypttab contains:

swapcrypt               /dev/sda5       /dev/urandom swap
tmpcrypt                /dev/sda6       /dev/urandom tmp
luks-home               /dev/md0        none

This is my primary machine.
If you want me to, I can wait a couple of days, answering you debugging questions.

Eventually I'll do a yum-upgrade as I did for the last couple of Fedora releases.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 15:59:36 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

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:
