Kernel panic after upgrade to 2.6.9-42.0.2 (root under LVM2)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:27 EST
Description of problem:
After RHN upgrade from kernel-smp-2.6.9-5.EL to kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL,
system with root partition under LVM2 does not boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. system was initially partitioned/formatted/installed with root partition
under LVM2 using lvm2-2.00.31-1.0.RHEL4 and kernel-smp-2.6.9-5.EL
2. via RHN, it was upgraded (without any problems) to lvm2-2.02.06-6.0.RHEL4
3. system reboot with new kernel results in kernel panic
System boot normally with old kernel; with new kernel boot aborts with 'kernel
Booting 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-42.0.0.ELsmp)'
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
