Comment 1 Valent Turkovic 2007-09-02 04:37:57 EDT
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
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2007-09-14 13:07:56 EDT
probably transient mkinitrd breakage.  Should be ok now? 
Comment 3 Valent Turkovic 2007-09-16 03:54:27 EDT
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?
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2007-09-19 15:42:00 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Valent Turkovic 2007-09-20 02:11:09 EDT
jup, latest kernel works ok.

Linux fedora7 2.6.23-0.29.rc0.git6.fc8
