Description of problem:
Boot fails (has been failing with all 2.6.27 kernel for perhaps the past month).
System is x86_64 dual core. With / on a software raid0 drive.
One of the error messages on the boot screen says:
mkrootdev: could not determine nfs root target.
but root isn't nfs.
The system boots just fine with kernel-188.8.131.52-108.fc9.x86_64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See attached boot screen photo.
kernel-184.108.40.206-29.fc9.x86_64 also fails on this machine.
( I changed Fedora version of this bz to 9 to reflect this. )
kernel-220.127.116.11-108.fc9.x86_64 is OK.
I'm not seeing the "mkrootdev: could not determine nfs root target"
but it still isn't mounting / from a software raid device.
It seems that my problem was caused by installing ltsp-client on the server.
Works OK now.
