Description of problem:
yum -y install kernel-188.8.131.52-97.fc9.i686 results in
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: line 104: 19259 Aborted ...
Installed: kernel.i686 0:184.108.40.206-97.fc9
see the complete output of yum in the attachment
I can't boot from this kernel after having edited grub.conf with the new vmlinuz
and initrd, it says something like there is a problem with /dev/root, my root
filesystem isn't even mounted...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
how about my grub.conf being edited normally, and my kernel being bootable? ;)
is there a problem with my UUID of my root filesystem?? ...

This bug looks similar to:
Well thanks!! i tried to unmount my usb drives, rmmoded usb_storage , removed
11-97 kernel,reinstalled 11-97 and it worked ok :)
I did not find this bug while searching...
You can mark it as a duplicate of this bug!
Here's some more information if that can help:
After the broken installation of 11-97 kernel, i tried to boot with it and
here's what i got:
mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root
setuproot: moving /dev failed: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: no such file or directory
mount failed for selinuxfs on /selinux
switchroot: mount failed
hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2
and then it stopped, i could reboot with ctrl-alt-sup.
So it's rather strange considering vmlinuz, initrd, and config files for the
kernel 11-97 were in place in /boot ... i just modified grub.conf in order to
boot with the 11-97 kernel and 11-97 initrd and apparently it could not mount my
root filesystem or something...
I thought the yum install of 11-97 kernel had installed the files correctly
while failing to change grub.conf only but apparently there was something else
that failed? ...
I should add that i already had kernel updates with my fedora 9, with
usb_storage loaded and many usb hard drives mounted and it just worked
perfectly, anyhow this time it failed...
ok at least 2 guys encountered this weird bug ;)
