Description of problem:
fedora won't boot with kernel 2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8 but it boots ok with kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on the machine
2. choose kernel 2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8 from grub menu
it complains about unable to mount /sys / and other partitions... I can't find
it in log files because it is obviously now writen into when noting is mounted.
to boot up fabulous fedora :)
tell me what do you need and how can I give you more feedback.
this fixes it:
# mv /boot/initrd-2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8.img
# mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8.img 2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8
probably transient mkinitrd breakage. Should be ok now?
after issuing mkinitrd command that fixes it, but I didn't test if it works if I
put "/boot/initrd-2.6.23-0.149.rc4.fc8.img.orig" back. Do you want me to try it?
It that what you had in mind?
just install the latest kernel with yum. If that boots without you having to
mess around with mkinitrd at all, then we can close this.
jup, latest kernel works ok.
