Description of problem:
When tryed to upgrade from RH 6.2 to 7.2 or RH 7.3. I am getting the message
"You can not upgrade. There is no valid file system". I have dual boot computer
with two identical hard drives(maxtor 27 GB each). The vfat system is one of
them and and the other has 150 MB of vfat and about 27 GB of ext2. I already
tryed boot image downloaded from your site and it does not make any difference.
If I tryed to install insted of upgrading I can get to the screen where disk
druid shows that there is only one hard drive with vfat file system. The fdisk
shows all hard drives and all file systems. The RH 7.1 can be used to upgrade
with no problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrading from rh6.2 to rh7.2/7.3
Actual Results: message : no valid file system
Expected Results: should upgrade
What does your /etc/fstab look like?
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have additional information to
add to this report.
I've tryed RH 8.0 with the same results. Can not upgrade because of invalid file
system. I did send you my fstab. If you need more info please let me know.
/dev/hdb7 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb2 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb6 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
#/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hdb8 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/dosc vfat rw,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/dosd vfat rw,umask=0 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0
above is my fstab file
I also tried to instal with automatic partition option. The installer sent a
warning message: The hdb drive needs to be initialze. The file system on hdb
drive is not readable. The RH 7.1 and fdisk can read this file system, but
starting from RH 7.2 and above the installer has a problem reading it.
This would appear to correspond to our move to using parted. Reassigning.
Should be better with our current codebase
