Description Andy Schlei 2005-06-30 04:15:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4 Description of problem: Installing FC4 from either HTTP or DVD, over existing SMP install of FC3. Installer looks for, but does not find, existing implementation, so only offers install, not upgrade options. Upgrade has worked on non-SMP install of FC3 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.11-1.35_FC3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot from DVD or boot.iso image 2. Start install process, select language, etc. 3. Anaconda offers only install, not upgrad options Actual Results: Anaconda goes down install, not upgrade path Expected Results: offers to upgrade current FC3 installation Additional info: Here is FSTAB: /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/VolGroup00/lvhome /home ext3 defaults 1 1 LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0 Here is output from df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 93G 15G 75G 17% / /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-lvhome 147G 69G 71G 50% /home /dev/hda1 99M 32M 63M 34% /boot none 251M 0 251M 0% /dev/shm
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-08 18:29:27 UTC
What are the contents of /etc/fedora-release? Also, does it work if you boot with 'linux upgradeany'?
Comment 2 Andy Schlei 2005-07-18 01:14:31 UTC
Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been on vacation. /etc/fedora-release is: [andy@FedoraServer ~]$ cat /etc/fedora-release Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg) ------------- I booted from the boot.iso boot disc, ran with "linux upgradeany" and it still did not find the existing installation and went immediately to the clean install dialogs.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-18 19:19:20 UTC
Can you switch to tty2 at the screen with the desktop, workstation and custom choices and grab /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to attach here?
Comment 4 Andy Schlei 2005-07-20 01:42:09 UTC
Created attachment 116958 [details] Anaconda.log from installation choice screen
Comment 5 Andy Schlei 2005-07-20 01:43:19 UTC
Created attachment 116959 [details] Syslog from anaconda selection screen As requested, the two files from tty2 during install process
Comment 6 Andy Schlei 2005-07-20 01:46:33 UTC
Files attached as requested.
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-26 03:56:40 UTC
For some reason, running the lvm commands is failing
Comment 8 Christian Iseli 2007-01-20 00:13:45 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.
Comment 9 Andy Schlei 2007-01-20 18:43:00 UTC
This bug is no longer relevant. I cannot see if it is still a problem since all my systems are now on FC6.
