Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8052
Upgrade only finds first /kernel partition on disk
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:19 EST
If you have a system disk with multiple versions of RedHat Linux
(e.g. a test version of Linux on hda4 and your "production" version
of Linux on hda6), the RedHat 6.1 upgrade option only finds the
first partition and performs the upgrade there. It doesn't find
the second one and let you perform the upgrade on it. This makes it
difficult to "test" an upgrade before doing the actual install.
This is fixed in the latest version of the installer available in RawHide.
