Description Jaak Simm 2006-02-07 11:48:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060202 Fedora/1.0.7-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The latest kernel (version 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4) is not able to boot, but older kernels still boot (like 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4). After choosing the kernel-2.6.15-1830_FC4 from the grub boot menu, it generates following output:

 Filesystem is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.16.15-1.1830_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x185650]
Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure

Press any key to continue...

After pressing a key it goes back to the grub boot menu and choosing other kernels will successfully boot the system.

All other packages are also up-to-date.

What I have tried:
- removing the kernel (also from local yum cache) and re-installing, no success
- removing livna's binary nvidia drivers

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. restart computer
2. choose the new kernel for booting

Actual Results:  machine didn't boot to linux

Expected Results:  machine should have booted to linux
