Description david.hagood 2005-06-19 13:44:11 UTC
Description of problem: Anaconda cannot parse fstabs that contain "LABEL=foo" style mounts Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a system with "LABEL=foo" style mounts for root file system. 2. Try to do an upgrade with FC4 anaconda Actual results: Anacoda barfs with "One of your filesystem is in a consistant state" error, and offers no choice but to reboot. Expected results: Anaconda should figure out the mount, or at least allow me to hand-mount the filesystem on another console and try again. Additional info: Anaconda has had this problem since RH8.

Created attachment 115662 [details] The offending fstab entry
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-06-20 20:17:23 UTC
This appears to be working for me on an FC3 -> FC4 upgrade. Can you switch over to tty3 (ctrl-alt-f3) and see if there are any obvious error messages? Additionally, can you attach the /tmp/anaconda.log file to this report?
Comment 3 david.hagood 2005-06-20 23:32:08 UTC
OK, the info on VC3 is: Moving (1) to step welcome moving (1) to step findrootparts isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/hda1 on /mnt/sysimage isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/hda6 on /mnt/sysimage isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/sda1 on /mnt/sysimage isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/sda2 on /mnt/sysimage moving (1) to step findinstall moving (1) to step partitionobjinit error munging swap label: [Errno 22] Invalid argument error reading jfs label on /tmp/disk: [Errno 2] Invalid argument moving (1) to step upgrademount going to mount hda6 on /mnt/sysimage as ext3 isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/hda6 on /mnt/sysimage error mungin swap label: [Errno 22] Invalid argument error reading jfs label on /tmp/disk: [Errno 22] Invalid argument trying to mount sda2 on /mnt/work ... And from there out there are no unusual looking messages.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2005-06-21 15:17:43 UTC
Workaround - change your fstab entries to specify a filesystem instead of saying "auto" for those labeled entries.
Comment 5 david.hagood 2005-06-21 22:10:43 UTC
OK, so, that's it? Just a work-around, not an effort to actually fix the problem? Or does this mean "closed, will be fixed in Rawhide"? The whole idea of having things like label mounts and fstype=auto is to allow the system to better handle changes without needed to tweak a bunch of files. If Anaconda cannot deal with the same setups that mount does, then Anaconda is BROKEN.
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2005-06-22 13:43:05 UTC
No, the workaround was for your immediate benefit so you can do whatever you need to do while we work on another anaconda release. The "closed - rawhide" means I have committed a fix for it. From the CVS commit mailing list: 2005-06-21 Chris Lumens <email@example.com> + * fsset.py (AutoFileSystem): Add mount and umount methods so entries + in /etc/fstab marked as "auto" can still be mounted on upgrade + (#160986).
