Upgrade to R71.10 on SPLAT fails if done with local ISO mount

Hi all!

Just a quick note, mostly for myself to remember.

Apparently if you are doing an upgrade to R71.10 with ISO file, the installation wrapper un-mounts and mounts back the CDROM for whatever reason. So if you are using my advice about mounting local ISO files as a CDROM, beware - the upgrade will fail.

As it has just happened to me. That was unexpected, indeed.


  1. Temporarily, You can edit the /etc/fstab and specify the iso so that the installer can re-mount.
