Description Ralf Kleineisel 2002-11-22 08:04:39 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
While trying to upgrade RH from 7.2 to 8.0 the installer cannot handle my swap
partitions  /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6 and /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i1l0p6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start install of RH 8.0
2.Choose "Upgrade existing installation"
3.
	

Actual Results:  When the installer searches for an existing linux installation
it looks for swap partitions, too. It cannot handle swap space if the entry in
the fstab is of the form /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6.
It works after editing the fstab and changing the entry to /dev/sda6.

Expected Results:  Fstab entries of the form /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6 should be
accepted.

this looks like you're using scsidev.  We have never used scsidev in Red Hat
Linux.  We can't translate from the /dev/scsi that was created with scsidev to
the actual device that swap is on.  Once sysfs is done we will move to that to
have static mappings for drives.  Till then, this is not supported.
