"\usr merge script failed" during preupgrade from f16 ro f17


When trying to upgrade from F16 to F17 using preupgrade, the boot sequence to the F17 option is stopped with the error "The \usr merge script failed..." etc. on reboot.

I've tried to follow the setps in the Bugzilla posting for this but don't show any symlinka back to /etc. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=831242

"I have just experienced this on a server I am upgrading. I found a symlink in /usr/bin called 'java' pointing at /etc/alternatives/java. Deleting the symlink corrected the error and the upgrade is now proceeding."
Where do I go from here. I can successfully reboot into FC16 so the box is up & running and there is not a huge time pressure to resolve this.

I've done the above search with the following results (doesn't look like any symlinks going to etc) and as far as I know I have no NFS/CIFS mounts for that directory eiter (just running Samba here). How do I proceed to fix this or get around it...or worst case back out what preupgrade has already done? I was able to reboot into the "old" FC16 setup manually and its working fine so I'm guessing remove the entries in the grub.conf files maybe but some direction there and what else to clean up would help if we can't resolve this.

Thanks,

To clean up the symlinks:

cd /usr
find ./ -mount -lname /etc/\*

Then rm -rf the listed items and rerun preupgrade
