Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 485274
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root' - again
Last modified: 2009-02-12 13:25:57 EST
Description of problem:
Booted the new release of Fedora 11 Alpha, used the install option from the desktop.
I have two disks, installation was on sda, sdb is my data store and home partition. Other than the config of sdb device config was default (logical volume for /)
All installation went well.
On reboot, I can see plymouth start, then got the following error after the logical volume successful message:
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
In searching found a similar previous bug for F9 of # 431778 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=431778)
Unlike F9 Alpha, I had no additonal messages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On first install so far
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install alpha
failed to boot on first usage
Boot into Fedora 11
Known issue, to workaround this you need to specify your root on the kernelcmdline (grub) not as UUID= or LABEL=, but directly, see the F11 alpha release notes.
Once you've booted this way do:
yum update mkinitrd
yum update kernel
And booting by UUID should work again.
