Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 689695
preupgrade 2nd stage fails - cannot locate installation
Last modified: 2013-07-03 22:26:48 EDT
Description of problem:
After reboot (after preupgrade copied installation files locally), the ncurses interface asks me to specify image dir. It fails no matter what I try to give it.
I have sda1 (Windows), sda2, sda3:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 63 163840319 81920128+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

/dev/sda3 164866048 312580095 73857024 8e Linux LVM
This is the kernel command line:

I think I have enough space in /boot:
[root@ykaul upgrade]# df -h

I'm trying to use sda3 and select /boot/upgrade/install.img - but it just fails with 'cannot mount' error.

Is this fixed on F16? It seems to work for me.

Almost a year since I've reported it, I really don't have the system to re-test anymore.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. 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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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 '15' 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 15 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:
