Description of problem:
kernel 3.9.8-100.fc17.x86_64 causes kernel panic when booting (older versions, 3.8.13-100.fc17.x86_64 and before, still work)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
boot the kernel
My hardware: Asus zenbook UX31E
Steps to Reproduce:
kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount rootfs on unknown-block(0,0)
see also screenshot (attached)
I tried upgrading with Fedup, but selecting in grub the 'System Upgrade (fedup)' entry, the same boot problem occurs.
I have been able to upgrade from fc17 to fc19 using fedup. After doing again a "yum update" and "fedup-cli --network 19" I was able to run to installer.
However, I still have problems running the 3.9 kernels (both the fc19 and the fc17 version). I don't see the kernel panic anymore, instead the boot process stops when the logo is shown (so before starting the graphical mode). Then nothing happens. I guess I need to create a new bug report for that, related to Fedora 19. I'll do that later.
Currently I run 3.8 kernel from fc17 on Fedora 19. That works.
It crossed my mind that kernel 3.9 has some new SSD related updates and this laptop has SSD.
created bug report 981898, related to Fedora 19.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
