Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:38:18 EST
Tried to upgrade from 6.0 to 6.1 today.
Have a dual pII board with onboard aic78XX.
No ide. After upgrade system won't boot.
Msg from kmod about an error not be able to load
Then unable to mount rootfs.
Think not loading initrd. but had no time. Put back old
2.2.12 kernelby boot flop. Rebooted. worked fine until now.

I had a similar problem, the upgrade changed the mount options in my
/etc/fstab file, change the mount options to defaults or add auto to
the list. Worked for me.
For me the upgrade changed the mount options in /etc/fstab so the
filesystem does not automount. Change your mount options to
"defaults" or add "auto" to the list.
Worked for me.
I'm the one origanly opening the bug. But this isn't a case from a
changed fstab. It was a problem with not loading the adaptec driver.
On a second reboot i got a message that an adaptec scsi card was
found. a little late in my opinion ;-)
Am closing out this bug, as the source of the problem has been found. Sounds
like your Adaptec card was in some weird state when the boot operation tried to
query it, and therefore it was not able to reply and the system was not able to
find your root disk.
