Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9534
Upgrade has "device busy" glitch
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I was trying an upgrade from 4.2 to 6.1.92. After choosing the Upgrade
option, in the Upgrade Examine screen, I choose 'Customize packages to be
upgraded', and then 'Next'.
On this machine, hda3 is /. When I click 'Next', 'mount' on VT2 shows hda3
mounted for a few seconds as /tmp/sysimage and then it is unmounted.
The installer says it's "Reading package information" and then displays the
Individual Package Selection screen. I choose 'Back'.
On VT2, 'mount' still shows / (hda3) unmounted.
I click 'Next'. I get "Error mounting hda3: Device or resource busy". VT2
still shows hda3 as unmounted.
I know this is less than clear, let me know if I need to clarify.
This bug is fixed will be fixed in the next release of the installer code.
