Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 978346
system doesn't boot after installation
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:42:05 EST
Description of problem:
I'm currently unable to reproduce it, but I have done fresh install of Fedora 19 RC2 from netinst, I set root and /home to be BTRFS and after installation, I was unable to boot using standard initram filesystem. Rescue target worked, so I booted it, rebuilt initram using "dracut -f" and new initram works (I am able to boot using it). I examined both images using "lsinitrd" and there are some differences. I am attaching anaconda logs, outputs from lsinitrd and both initram images.

broken initramfs image
please attach the anaconda logs and /var/log/dracut.log
Also the /run/initramfs/sosreport.txt from booting the broken image would be most useful.
Just mount /boot by hand and copy over sosreport.txt

I have mounted *.img of disk using kpartx during unsuccessful boot, but I couldn't locate sosreport.txt.
it's in /run.. /run is a tmpfs in memory.
I am unable to mount /boot and copy sosreport.txt, because it event doesn't drop me into rescue shell. It hangs during boot (without visible error).

Hmm... that looks more like a broken kernel
please add "rd.debug debug" to the kernel command line and remove "quiet"
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
