Problem Description:

Booting 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp generates panic.  Console capture in attachment. 
Other kernels, including previous smp, are working. Any suggestions?


title Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
noapic lapic console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600n8 debug
        initrd /initrd-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
noapic lapic
        initrd /initrd-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
noapic lapic
        initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp.img

Comment 2 josip 2005-07-20 23:22:37 UTC
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 is broken and refuses to boot on two different 
platforms, one with SCSI and one with parallel ATA disks.  Previous kernel-smp-
2.6.11-1.35_FC3 works fine on both platforms.

The failure appears to be related to the new kernel's inability to find root 
partition, specified as either "LABEL=/" or "/dev/hda2".  The old kernel does 
that without any problems.
