Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 489651
onboot - mount: count not find filesystem '/dev/root'
Last modified: 2010-06-28 07:26:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Thinkpad T41p FC11 Alpha using kernal 2.6.29-0.66.rc3.fc11.i586
First boot, setup manual eth0 config and then setup system eth0 config. I removed the manual eth0 config and froze.
Bootting now :-
2 logical volume(s) in voume group "VolGroup" now active
mount: count not find filesystem '/dev/root'
Using the rescue mode, verified that the device doesn't exist. Can alt-ctrl-del to reboot the laptop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Will do if not simple to restore via rescue mode.
Steps to Reproduce:
Same issue in a HP Compaq nx7300 with an existing windows partition.
I've made a default install in the free hard disk space and it doesn't boot with the same message.
I booted in rescue mode and I changed the option root=UUID=.... in /boot/grub/menu.lst
I put root=/dev/vg_myhostname/lv_root, made a grub-install /dev/sda and then it boots ok.
Same thing for a Dell Studio laptop. Not on first boot however, but happens randomly about every 5 to 10 boots.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Are you able to reproduce the problem on Fedora-12?
Note that this bug report is against 'devlabel' component, this package goes not exist in Fedora.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
