Description Panos Kavalagios 1999-11-08 09:14:06 UTC
Dear Sir/Madam,

I downloaded your Red Hat Linux 6.1 distribution, in order
to upgrade the previous version 5.1, which is currently
installed on my computer.

The upgrade procedure stops responding, when reaching
"Finding packages to upgrade" and with <ctrl>-<alt>-F1 I
saw many errors in some python scripts (I can't remember
right now, but I can write them down, if you wish). My
system consists of four partitions (/, /home, /var, /usr)
and I've noticed with <ctrl>-<alt>-F2 and with the mount
command issued without options, that the file systems /home
and /var was not mounted and the only partitions mounted
under /tmp/sysimage was / and /usr. A friend of mine, having
only / and /usr partitions had no problem with upgrade

Please, verify the above problem, because we want to upgrade
our server, which has the same partition configuration plus
/tmp, in the Lab as well and we don't even think about
performing a clean install. Thank you very much in advance.

Kind Regards,
