Description Herbert Straub 2006-08-08 13:59:49 EDT
Description of problem:

I cannot boot the system after a fresh installation of Fedora Core 6 Test 2 on a
HP Blade server via Firefox and ILO Java Console, because: could not find root
filesystem. I find no way to copy the console output to ASCII text, therefore i
attached the console output as PNG screenshot.

My workaround to boot the system:
1. Change the Grub Kernel line from ... root=LABEL=/12 ... to ...
root=/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 single

2. Edit /etc/fstab and change:
#LABEL=/12               /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1               /                       ext3    defaults        

#LABEL=SW-cciss/c0d0p5   swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cciss/c0d0p5   swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

reboot. Looks OK

Looks like a broken initrd.  Peter, any ideas?
Comment 3 Peter Jones 2006-08-16 16:54:20 EDT
Yeah, cciss uses '!' at a very unfortunate place, and everything else in sysfs
uses '!' to mean something else.  I'll have to spend some time with a cciss card
soon and fix this :/
