Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7317
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:51 EST
During installation on a box with a master and slave IDE hard drive with
hda1, hda2, hda3 (1=fat dosc, 2=ntfs, 3=ntfs) partitions and hdb1, hdb2,
hdb3 Linux partitions (2 is swap) The installation fails when the installer
notices hda5 partition, which does not exist. Is there a way to make the
installation program only notice the second disk (hdbx) which has the RH
6.0 Linux partition??? The installation program from 5.1 to 6.0 had no
problems with these partitions until 6.1. The CDROM is on the second IDE
channel as the master device. The upgrade from RH 5.1 to RH 6.0 worked
without any problems, but the RH 6.0 to 6.1 upgrade fails. Suggestions???
I have tried the new updates installation disks posted, and the failure
continues. THe first sign of failure if the fact that the installation
program will not move to the X screens (the box has a generic Diamond
Stealth video card that has never caused a problem from RH 4.x). Then the
next error is that hda5 partition cannot be mounted (yes, it does not
exist), and the installation (in my case an upgrade) fails. Suggestions???
Send me a copy of your /etc/fstab file as well as output from fdisk -l /dev/hda
Closing bug due to lack of activity.
