Description Ulrich Hobelmann 2011-03-26 10:44:15 EDT
Description of problem:
After rebooting, preupgrade does not find its install image and asks me (whatever file I'm supposed to point it to...). This is probably, because preupgrade fails with an exception (but sometimes still presents the "reboot computer now" button):

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : preupgrade
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 1.1.8
Release     : 1.fc14

(I'm filing this bug on version 14, because the preupgrade already fails on the F14 host system, not only in the rebooted F15/preupgrade environment.)

How reproducible:
Run preupgrade on F14.

Expected results:
I'm expecting preupgrade to find all image files it needs, and after rebooting to find those files as well and upgrade my system.

I'm confirming this issue.
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2011-04-05 04:21:54 EDT
You need to use the 1.1.9 release to upgrade to F15.
Comment 3 Jan Vlug 2011-04-05 04:36:56 EDT
ok, but currently 1.1.8 is in the F14 repository...
Comment 4 Ulrich Hobelmann 2011-04-09 17:43:32 EDT
1.1.9 is available (at least in updates-testing) on F14 and preupgrade worked like a charm, so this bug can be closed, IMHO. (I'm leaving it open, as I don't see a RESOLVED option.)
