Description Andy Piper 2005-12-19 11:48:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 (CK-IBM) Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
None of the 2.6.14 kernel updates will boot on my system. FC4 is installed on an sata_via system with software RAID. On booting, immediately after init there are errors:

mount: error 22 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...

System is an Athlon64 running i386 kernel on Gigabyte K8VNXP motherboard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to boot from grub with a 2.6.14-1.xxx_FC4 kernel

Actual Results:  Kernel panic

Expected Results:  System boots normally

Additional info:

I've read various reports about this being related to either module changes upstream, or mkinitrd not executing properly.

I've tried removing /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and /etc/modprobe.conf, rebuilding them via kudzu whilst running kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 (the last one to boot successfully), re-running mkinitrd and comparing the contents with the initrd installed with the kernel... no luck, kernel panic every time.
