Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 621001
Unable to boot new kernel 22.214.171.124-147.2.4.fc13.x86_64 for fedora 13
Last modified: 2010-08-05 02:53:18 EDT
Description of problem:
After starting the boot process, I get the message
dracut: FATAL: osr: Cannot find parameter file /tmp/osr.nodeid. This parameter is required and not set.
dracut: Refusing to continue
Boot has failed, sleeping forever.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. simply install the 126.96.36.199.6-147.2.4.fc13.x86_64 kernel package
The kernel 188.8.131.52-147 continues to boot just fine.
You installed osr-dracut-module-cluster ...
Why did you do that? Do you have an osr cluster?
If yes, you have to configure the cluster.
If you don't have an osr cluster and blindly installed all packages with "dracut" in the name, then:
# yum remove osr-dracut-module osr-dracut-module-chroot \
osr-dracut-module-cluster dracut-fips dracut-modules-olpc
and recreate your initramfs image
# dracut -f /boot/initramfs-184.108.40.206.6-147.2.4.fc13.x86_64.img \
*** Bug 621344 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I tried your suggestions and I still get the same result at reboot.
There were typos in the command line as given by Mr. Hoyer. The recreate of the initramfs image should be edited as follows : s/2.2.6/2.6/g
Things now work correctly.

sorry, I blindly copy & pasted the version from comment 1
