Description R.M. van der Spek 2011-04-14 03:05:18 EDT
Description of problem: After having installed Fedora 15 it did not boot. It stopped with halve a page of error messages among which: "Kernel panic -> Unable to mount root". Fortunately I could start F15 with the previous F14-kernel. I looked into /boot/grub/grub.conf and found out there was a line missing for "initrd /boot/initfamfs-22.214.171.124-9.fc15.i686.img" (or something alike). Looking into the /boot-folder I found out there was no img-file for F15. There were for the previous kernels, but not for the newest installed Fedora 15. It must have been a bug in installation (I used 'preupgrade') for I did not alter anything before this error appeared. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 15 How reproducible: Not sure. Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: Running F15 on a Packard Bell Dot S netbook.

Same here. Upgrade with preupgrade too. Corrected after a : # yum reinstall kernel
Comment 2 R.M. van der Spek 2011-04-16 00:51:53 EDT
Unfortunately this did not work for me. Yum told me it had 'nothing to do'. So I tried uninstalling f15-kernel first. This worked, but after trying to install it I bumped on the following: [rmvanderspek@laptop2 ~]$ sudo yum install kernel-126.96.36.199-9.fc15.i686 Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Setting up Install Process No package kernel-188.8.131.52-9.fc15.i686 available. Error: Nothing to do How can there not be a package available?
Comment 3 R.M. van der Spek 2011-04-16 02:35:19 EDT
After removing duplicates it is now installing the F15-kernel. I don't understand why it didn't work before, but does work now. Anyhow: I'm glad it does :).
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 14:10:32 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version' of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX. (Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.) Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on "Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that version of Fedora. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
