analyzing all /etc/fstab files??



I appear to have been hit by a change in the way anaconda & blivet initialization work. I could install just fine with the Fedora-20-Beta DVD but hit huge problems with Fedora-20-TC5 on real hardware.

The systems involved are real hardware and each have multiple installs into different partitions (a mixture of regular partitions, logical volumes and BTRFS subvolumes). Not all of these install can still boot. An example:
   1. a system installed on lvm-root1 with /boot on /dev/sda6
2. later, a new ssd was added and /dev/sda6 was used for /boot with the rootfs on a subvol on the new ssd. 3. This left lvm-root1 still existing but with a UUID for /boot which no longer existed on ths hardware.

The result: anaconda/blivet barf all over the place with very strange errors. saying it cannot find a UUID. Of course not, it is gone. So what!

Not good, not good. If nothing else, this needs to be documented so other folks do not spend a lot of time chasing their tails.
