Re: kernel panic

No if I understood it, it was booting the kernel fine.  After it ran out
of initrd though, it was unable to find the actual root filesystem
partition.  Under those circumstances it does say:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

so "panic" was the right phrase here, even though it makes one think of
something quite different.

As I pointed out 18 hours ago, if it was the case the root=(LABEL=/ ?)
part of the kernel commandline in /boot/grub/grub.conf no longer matched
the partitions on the drive for some reason, it could have directly
explained it.
