Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246650
running Knopix to see if I can fix anything. Not sure how I'll get back to an FC8 boot again.

Description of problem:
Updates for July 3, including kernel update. Pirut crashed when selecting
"reboot now". Upon reboot, using new kernel or old kernel, OS panics indicating
that /bin/init, /bin/echo, /bin/sleep not found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
can not boot OS
Steps to Reproduce:
kernet xx.3240 or xx.3242 will not boot. kernel panics. how do I get back to a
working fc8 devel OS?
Created attachment 158457 [details]
crash report made by system
reboot command failed. trying to log into text based window failed (respawn too
fast). Power cycle. Computer panics with old or new kernel. init, sleep, echo
It appears that mkinitrd-6.0.9-7.1 is not available for fc8 (last checked Th.,
July 5.) Yet, it is required.
That's probably why the kernel update and creation of initrd image file failed,
causing the OS to be unbootable.
My solution, so far incomplete, has been to insert the Live FC7 Test 4 CD,
install to disk, modify yum, and begin the process of downloading all of the fc8
RPM's all over again.
Attempting this made me aware of the fact that mkinitrd, although required, is
not yet available.
the mkinitrd dep got fixed, there doesn't seem to be any other kernel bug in
this report, so I'm going to close it.
