Description Christophe Fergeau 2012-03-26 05:58:24 EDT
Description of problem:

dracut-017-59.git20120321.fc17 added a require on util-linux >= 2.21 which is only in f16.
Trying to follow https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum#Fedora_16_-.3E_Fedora_17 causes util-linux to be upgraded at the "yum --releasever=17 update rpm dracut" step, which ends up trying
to upgrade filesystem to the f17 version. This package cannot be installed at this point since the goal of the first step is to do the usrbin conversion, and f17 filesystem package cannot be installed before the conversion is done.
