preupgrade F11->F12 fails?


Since F11 will EOL soon, I decided to try to upgrade to F12 using preupgrade. It runs fine and says 'upgrade will start on next boot'. However, on reboot, I get a text-mode anaconda that requests I configure eth0. Once configured it starts downloading install.img. Why is that? once preupgrade has downloaded everything why should it need to download something? Should I allow it to continue (my net is *very* slow so will take ages)?

thanks for the help

Re: preupgrade F11->F12 fails?

Do you have enough space available in /boot? There is a problem with F12 and the default 200MB seems to be not enough.
