2 anaconda problems

Hello

I have 2 issue upgrading to fedora 16 with pre upgrade :

First it is this issue :
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...=1#post1532533

I also solved it with nomodeset

Now anaconda is well loading, but I get another error :

"the root for the previously installed system was not found"

I don't know how to solve this issue, maybe because it come from the nomodeset option...

all the uuid seems correct :


Code:
default=1
timeout=0
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu

/dev/root: UUID="2e5220d2-7311-4143-9ca0-e729d3c476c3" TYPE="ext4"

Fortunately I still can boot and use f15 normally so I can make change in the /boot/upgrade/ks.cfg file if needed, but does anyone has an idea of how to solve it ?

thanks a lot !

Re: 2 anaconda problems

Is your /var not on thr root fs? If this is the case, it's a known bug of anaconda. You will find workarounds on the forum or on RedHat forum.

Re: 2 anaconda problems

Yes thanks, I also asked the question on the french fedora forum an I got the link to the bug :

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common..._.2F_will_fail

So I had to add :

nomodeset updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/748119.img

then finally the update ran successfully.
