Description of problem:
When installing FC4 with reiserfs as the root file system, grub is not able to start the kernel. I gives the error that it cannot find the vmlinuz file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC4 from DVD using grub options "reiserfs selinux=0"
2.Partition the disk by putting / and swap on seperate partitions and the rest is handles by LVM. / is formatted as reiserfs.
3.After install when prompted to reboot, reboot!
Actual Results: grub fails to find the vmlinuz file.
Expected Results: The kernel should have booted
I am dual booting with WindowsXP, Linux and windowsxp are on different disks. There are 3 disks in the machine. hda is for windows. hdb and hdd are for linux. hdb is 20G and hdd is 160G. The logical volume manager spans over 11G of hdb and 160G of hdd.
This bug could be a duplicate of bug
But i never got a kernel panic.
Reiserfs is completely unsupported.
