Description Michael Cronenworth 2008-12-28 09:20:07 UTC
Description of problem: After upgrading from to my systems fail to boot. A message that reads "failed to mount" about type "xfs" is displayed after a few seconds of a black screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Additional info: Default partition scheme, except XFS / file system instead of ext3. Looks like something with xfs was ripped out? I diffed the kernel config and found nothing related so it must be something deeper. This has affected my two 64-bit systems. I haven't tried my 32-bit work system, which I won't be at for a few days.

Workaround: Boot using still works fine.

Also fails to boot on 32-bit systems. Full message reads:

mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as xfs: invalid argument

Comment 2 Michael Cronenworth 2009-01-10 03:01:29 UTC
Finally found a matching bug report. Closing this one.
