Description Adam Hitchcock 2005-05-23 02:30:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/412 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/412

Description of problem:
Installation completes correctly, however, upon attempting to mount the / partition it gives the error

>Checking filesystems  [ FAIL ]
>fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/'

in /etc/fstab line 1
LABEL=/   /   ext3 defaults 1 1
should be:
/dev/hdaX   /   ext3 defaults 1 1
(where X is where / is located)

to fix from the recovery prompt you must remount the / partition in read/write mode, edit /etc/fstab, 
remount / in read only, reboot.
to do this do thus:
1. enter password
2. $> mount -o remount,rw /
3. $> vi /etc/fstab
4. change LABEL=/ to just have it pointing to /dev/hdaX 
5. $> mount -o remount,ro /
6. $> Ctrl-D

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora core 4 test 3
2. let machine reboot
3. see error

Actual Results:  Checking filesystems  [ FAIL ]
>fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/'

in /etc/fstab line 1
LABEL=/   /   ext3 defaults 1 1

Expected Results:  The machine should finish the booting normally.

in /etc/fstab line 1
/dev/hdaX   /   ext3 defaults 1 1
(where X is where / is located)

Additional info:

I have only tried this on my iBook 500 dual usb thus far, I will attempt to reproduce it on on other PPC
