Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81466
Crash mounting partitions in rescue mode (when multiple installs are present)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:38 EDT
Description of problem:
I have RHL 8.0 at /dev/hda6 and Phoebe at /dev/hda2,
in both cases a single root partition. Both share
a swap partition /dev/hda5.
AFAIK are all filesystems without errors.
I booted Phoebe CD with 'linux rescue' and
selected to mount the "red hat linux partitions",
which led to the folowing traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 319, in ?
rescue.runRescue (rootPath, not rescue_nomount, id)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 130, in runRescue
for (drive, fs) in disks;
ValueError: unpack tuple of wrong size
Please excuse any typos.
Fixed in CVS
Confirmed fix in Phoebe-beta4. Rescue mode handles multiple installs sanely (it
asks you which one you want).
Adding to blocker bug 185483 and also adding IBM confidential group.
Oops. I am sorry for these changes. I searched on the wrong bug list and
mistakenly made these changes. Removing from blocker bug 185483 and also
removing IBM confidential group.
