Preupgrade installs unbootable upgrade system
Last modified: 2012-05-11 05:51:37 EDT
Description of problem:
after executing preupgrade (on f14)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not sure, if this is really preupgrade related
every time, different systems
Steps to Reproduce:
1. preupgrade to f15
2. reboot to install system
install system shows black screen, blinking cursor.
boot into anaconda to install/upgrade system
tried this in virtual box and on real (not ancient, about 3 years old) hardware.
/boot/upgrade/vmlinuz and /boot/upgrade/initrd get installed, grub entry is written, it looks ok.
I discovered that on my machine, although it looks to be doing nothing, it does actually work after a while.
Latest version of preupgrade (1.1.9) fixes this.
