At the end I re-set /etc/redhat-release to F11 and restarted the
upgrade grub line and the upgrade proceeded and system rebooted...
but now I have a stop with dracut that seems not able to see my LVM
I try to start with "rdinitdebug rdshell" command line parameters,
then manually mount my /boot partition and save over there init.log
and output of dmesg
Relevant first error message at boot is
dracut: /var/log/lvm2.log: fopen failed: No such file or directory
from rdshell I'm able to mount /boot but I get error trying LVM commands.
File descriptor 9 (/.console_lock) leaked on lvm invocation. parent
PID 751: sh /var/log/lvm2.log: fopen failed: No such file or directory
so I manually create /var/log/lvm2.log with
cat > /var/log/lvm2.log
and then the command
lvm pvdisplay works.... (with the file descriptor message and that it
is ffalling back to local file-based locking)
so now I can activate my volume group and mount my root file system
I think after all this pain, that all the problem is in /var/log
directory missing from initramfs embedded tree
So I need to recreate initramfs file with /var/log directory.....
I'm able to make this with mkinitrd but not with dracut......
I think I'm going to bugzilla against dracut anyway..... because
probably the ones that upgrade with an LVM root will encounter the
same scenario... correct?
