Description Christian Wilken 2009-02-06 19:05:37 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F11 (rawhide) x86_64

Actual results:
After first reboot hangs with "can't mount /dev/root" (not on the actual system now)

Expected results:
Boot to finalize(/customize) installation....

Additional info:
Quick resolution:
1. Select Fedora boot option in Grub
2. Press "e" (edit)
3. Select kernel line (line no 2) and press "e" (edit)
4. Replace "root=UUID=Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" with "root=/dev/vg_<hostname_as_set_earlier_in_install>/lv_root" (i.e. root=/dev/vg_localhost/lv_root)
5. Press "b" for boot... ;)
6. After installation has finished edit /boot/grub/grub.conf replacing the same line as above...

I'm seeing this as well, with some differences: 

 - no LVM
 - arch == i586

The same solution works. Changing component to e2fsprogs, although I'm not sure if that's really at fault. I can re-append the UUID line and retry booting if it helps. I did *not*, unfortunately, confirm the original UUID line was correct before cutting it.
Comment 2 Andrew Hecox 2009-02-08 21:34:54 EST
also, as a quick note: the root file system is ext4, and dumpe2fs <dev> | grep UUID returns a seemingly valid result.

Quoting bug 484508 comment #2 :

> mount by UUID not working in the alpha is a known problem in nash in the alpha.
> Please update to mkinitrd-6.0.76, and regenerate your initrd:
> mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
> Then this problem should go away.

Please reopen if this is not so.
