Description of problem:
After install I used up2date to get the latest SMP kernel, and everything works ok still. Then I used it to get the rest of the updates. After it reboots it runs into problems during init where it says that my 2 sata partitions /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 are already mounted or busy so it can't mount them. If I try to mount them manually once I login I receive the same error as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Neither of the sata drives get mounted.
Also, the box is an iwill dk8x (w/ latest bios) with 8x512MB of corsair pc3200
reg/ecc and dual opteron 275s. I have 4 other computers with opteron 246s and
275s which do not exhibit this problem.
Please attach fstab and /var/log/dmesg.
What SATA driver are you using?

I am using the silicon image driver, sata_sil. I noticed that SysV was one of
the first programs to be updated by up2date, do you think the problem might lie
strange. ok, to help narrow this down as a possible kernel problem. If you
reboot the old kernel does the system come up normally? Can you also please
specify the kernel versions that worked and did work, via 'uname -a'. thanks.
Just to let you know, the first error that pops up during init is:
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5 quotas: [failed]
This happens for all kernels I have loaded (2.6.9-5.EL and 2.6.9-22.0.1.EL and
the smp version). I can't use the 2.6.9-5.ELsmp kernel b/c I get an error and
it hangs before it ever gets to init.
Just to be sure to answer your question, no the old kernel (2.6.9-5) does not
come up normally either.
