From grub.conf:

        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.29.6-217.2.8.fc11.x86_64 ro root=UUID=63aad468-b185-4404-b4e9-c00b4f2a5dbe quiet rhgb vga=0x375
        initrd /initrd-generic-2.6.29.6-217.2.8.fc11.x86_64.img

ok, please provide the output of:
# lsinitrd /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img 
# ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
# blkid 
# blkid -o udev

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2009-08-27 15:19:27 UTC
ok, please use dracut-0.9-2.fc11

Latest F-11 dracut packages
If testing on Fedora 11, be sure you are using the latest packages available. At the time of the test day, the latest packages is dracut-0.9-2.fc11. If available, you can install the packages from the updates-testing repository:

# yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update dracut

If not available, you can also install directly from the build system:

# yum install koji
# cd $(mktemp -d)
# koji download-build 129497
# rpm -Fvh *.rpm

Comment 4 Martin Ebourne 2009-08-27 23:10:31 UTC
