Re: Kernel panic after FC2->FC5

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init.

uncompressed and booted. What is the best approach
to debugging this and is there specific set of
causes for this problem?

Hi Jack,

Ah yet another reason why I do not upgrade.  I love a fresh new install!!!

If you want to troubleshoot your problem where to start is probably here:


Me, I would have grabbed all the data before I tried the upgrade
(would have needed a GOOD reason to try an upgrade) and would now go
to a fresh install.  If I was helping a friend resolve the problem if
he had not backed up the data I would use a live CD and Flashdrive (or
maybe a temporary FTP server or file share) to grab the data.

Good Hunting!
