Description of problem:
I am running FC4 under VMware 5.
If I attempt to boot with either of the most recent two FC4 kernels (kernel-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4, kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4), I get the following:
Red Hat nash version 4.2.15 starting
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
No volume groups found
Unable to find volume group "VolGroup00"
ERROR: /bin/lvm exited abnormally with value 5 ! (pid 331)
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
ERROR opening /dev/console!!!!: 2
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 0
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 1
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 2
switchroot: mount failed: 22
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
(I typed out the above from the panic screen)
Reverting to kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 allows the system to boot again.
Help appreciated. Will try to provide more info if someone tells me what is needed. Thanks.
