I do not understand, I still cannot boot on the new kernel:
By "still cannot boot" what stopped it booting before this update?
Because I had the same problem, never resolved, with the previous update
of the kernel (220.127.116.11 if I remember)
That kernel boots for me, I didn't have to change anything to make it
This is why I do not undertsand why ity does not work for me !
This is my grub.conf:
title Fedora (18.104.22.168-52.fc7)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-52.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet selinux=0
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-52.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda8 rhgb quiet selinux=0
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda8 rhgb quiet selinux=0
I have not problem to boot on: 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
Using the above grub.conf stanza for that kernel? Your sample grub.conf
is an exact copy of the file? There's no typing errors in the copy you
Like what ? I do not see any typo.
I already work around. I cannot see what is wrong. The kernel
2.6.21-1.3194 is absolutely fine, but not the new ones. Same syntax.
By the way: CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, NOW! You've just shown the world the
hashsum for it, and that may be enough to crack it.
Is it the password of grub ?
The first time that I installed a FC7 I had a problem with the
root=LABEL=/ because I guess that I had 2 partitions on 2 different
With the new kernel, if I put:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-52.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet selinux=0
if fails because it try to boot on a /dev/sdb,
*Why* does using LABEL=/ cause it to use /dev/sdb? Do you have two
drives, is "/" the right label?
drive with the same lable like /. So since that time, I avoid to use the
LABEL. When I will understand exactly what is going on, I will be able
to make more test. Right now, I have a kernel booting properly. Doing
the same thing and just booting another kernel should work and it does
Yes /dev/sda8 has a label /, as well as /dev/sdb5 which I only mount in
Try the following command to see what label is on /dev/sda8:
so I force it to boot on
/dev/sda8, but I get:
setuproot: moving /dev failed No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc
setuproot: error mounting /sys
This is odd. Does using "/dev/sda8" definitely work for the other
