Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7055
Upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1 - system does not boot
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I've upgraded my RH 6.0 system (dual Piii, SCSI disk) to RH 6.1.
I used the updated boot disks downloaded from www.readhat.com.
The upgrade completed succefully, but the system does not boot
The last error is:
VFS: Cannot open root device 08:02
Looking at the other boot messages I can see that the SCSI disk
is not detected.
The SCSI card uses the aic7xxx driver and this driver works fine
in "rescue" mode. I can mount all my partitions and see them.
The problem occurs with both kernels 2.2.12-20smp and 2.2.12-20.
Is there some easy way to make the kernel recognize the SCSI controller?
I don't want to install from scratch.
Thanks for any help...
