Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243900
kernel panic with raid 1
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
just upgraded from fc6 to f7 using the dvd method. my computer has 2 SATA drives
and is partitoned like so:
/dev/sda1 linux partition
/dev/sda2 linux swap
/dev/sdb1 linux partition
It should be noted that sda1 and sda2 are using RAID 1 at /dev/md0. After
installing, I tried booting and got the follow kernel panic:
Creating root device.
mkrootdev: expected fs options
mounting root filesystemb.
mount: missing mount point
setting up other filesystems.
setting up new root fs
setuproot: moving /dev failed: no such file or directory
no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults
setuproot: error mounting /proc: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: no such file or directory
switching to new root and running init.
unmounting old /dev
unmounting old /proc
unmounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: no such file or directory
Booting has failed.
kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version root=/dev/md0
It should also be noted that my /dev/md0 has only a single mount point "/" (i.e.
no separate /boot mount points etc.)
Let me know what else you need to help resolve this issue.
I created a /boot partition in sdb2 (formerly free space) and then reinstalled
the kernel but the problem still exists. I'll try and post my /etc/fstab later
Please post contents of /etc/fstab and also create an attachment with the
contents of your initrd.
