Preupgrade cannot find install media

Hello Fedorians,

I'm trying to upgrade my F14 system to F15 via preupgrade. Everything downloaded ok, but after reboot I'm stuck.

After a looooong time reading the root image file the kernel finally boots and starts anaconda, which seems to have forgotten where preupgrade stored all its packages (and unfortunately, I'm not sure, either).

Where do I have to point preupgrade? /boot/upgrade/stage2.img is rejected, /boot/upgrade/initrd.img hangs the system, and whatever location in /var preupgrade stored packages in, I forgot...

Any ideas? (And any reason why preupgrade does not have a default location for this?)

Re: Preupgrade cannot find install media

I fooled around with preupgrade on my netbook, just to see what the new f15 looks like, and I noticed preupgrade gives an error before reboot, it basically cannot find stage2.img or similar and when booting it will ask you for the image (obvously) since it doesn't have it yet.

f15, preupgrade
