b0rked upgrade

Hello All,

Trying to upgrade a 10.2 server to 11.2.
I ran the upgrade from the DVD and it asked me to change the mount type
to something other than by kernel label. So I changed it using the
partitioner to by device-ID. Reran the upgrade and no issues, but now
the system does not boot. This is a virtual machine under VMware.

The first indications of trouble are:

Fatal: Error running install command for ata_piix
Fatal: Module jbd not found.
Fatal: Module ext3 not found.

Trying manual resume from /dev/sda1
Invoking in-kernel resume from /dev/sda1
Waiting for device /dev/disk/by-id/edd-int13_dev80-part2 to
appear:…

I realize this is totally unsupported, just tinkering around
to see what is possible. I’m assuming the ext3 -:> ext4 is an issue,
and possibly a problem with VMware IDE driver.

i do not see a question…did you mean for this to go to chit-chat?

This may or may not be applicable - since you are using a VM, and my experience is all real time installs (what do you call a non-VM??). Every time I’ve had similar issues, it has had to do with fstab, and the partitions not getting mounted.

Upgrading from 10.2 to 11.2 is not a good idea. Too many differences and stuff left over from 10.3 may bork 11.2
