Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-09-04 18:53:29 EDT
That's saying that RedHat/base/hdlist doesn't exist -- what type of hard drive
upgrade is this (iso or tree)?
Comment 3 Mike McLean 2002-09-04 20:25:18 EDT

and the tree is located in the root partition of the base 6.2 install.

and, yes, hdlist is there

hard drive is an ide (although there is a Adaptec scsi controller in the system
with no drives attached)

Case replicates readily on this machine.  Haven't tried others (there are not
many machines round here that can take a 6.2 install).
Comment 4 Mike McLean 2002-09-06 09:52:08 EDT
further testing reveals that this bug is confined to hd-tree upgrades from 6.2
where the tree is located on the root partition to be upgraded.

In particular, 
 - hd-iso works whether the isos are located on the root partition or a separate
 - hd-tree works if the tree is located on its own partition
Comment 5 Mike McLean 2002-09-06 10:56:40 EDT
Also observed with similar upgrade from 7.2.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-10 02:46:21 EST
hdtree is dead
