I also tried this option since it was originally commented, but I though
that if you have several partition with the same label "/" on 2 different

Hi Patrick DUPRE!
I do not understand, I still cannot boot on the new kernel:
This is my grub.conf:
I cannot find "boot=" in the grub manual. I do see it referenced but
unused in my Fedora grub.conf:
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
Note that the last line is commented out! Perhaps you should do the same.
drives, it could prevent any confusion.

I note with interest that you comment out a line that should work?
The errors you mention at the end would suggest that if you browse to
"/dev/sda8"/boot you would not find kernel
Yes, if I do ls "/dev/sda8" -l

/boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-52.fc7. To find out, boot into a working
linux partition, make a directory in /media called sda8 (humm - can
you boot to an extended partition??) and then mount using mount -t
ext3 /dev/sda8 /media/sda8. Then become root and browse to the disk
using cd /media/sda8/boot (or nautilus as root) and look for kernel
This works perfectly fine. However, I do not see your point.
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda8 rhgb
I have not problem to boot on: 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
With the new kernel, if I put:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-52.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
if fails because it try to boot on a /dev/sdb, so I force it to boot on
/dev/sda8, but I get:
Do you have "root (hd0,7)" in the stanza? I guess if you do I wonder
what gparted gets (using device sda) if you issue the "print" command.
I also wonder if you can boot from this partition if it is extended.
I Do not see your point. gparted does not seem to have any problem with
sda8 is a logical partition of an extented one sda2.
Why would it be OK with the kernel 2.6.21 and not with the 2.6.23 ?
setuproot: moving /dev failed No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc
setuproot: error mounting /sys
In what these 2 kernels are so different ?
