THis is required for Fedora 17 to work. The upgrade cannot continue.Then, it is impossible to boor on the previous installation. This is a real serious bug (x86_64)I may be a serious problem. But it won't get addressed if you don't file a *detailed* bugzilla. On your F16 system, did you have /usr on a separate partition?
Yes, I have / /usr /usr/lib /usr/local /home (Old fashion, like it was recommanded a while ago).
Yes I have a backup, but it would better to undertsand before reinstalling again because this failure is reproducible. In fact probably very little need to repaired.An upgrade failure is annoying. But, should never be fatal. In that doing a backup before hand simply results in one doing a fresh install.
I have other machines to update. Thank.
