Hello,

I do not understand, I still cannot boot on the new

2.6.23.12-52.fc7

This is my grub.conf:

splashimage=(hd0,7)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

I have not problem to boot on: 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
With the new kernel, if I put:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro
root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
selinux=0

if fails because it try to boot on a /dev/sdb, 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

In what these 2 kernels are so different ?

Regards

If changing from root=/ to
root=/dev/sda8
does not work, remove the kernel through yum then
reinstall it and see if that cures your problem.

BTW, that kernel is working for me

I already tried something similar. I remove the kernel by using rpm -e
then I made yum update kernel
This does not install the last version of the kernel, but anyway,
the software updater finally reinstall the last the version.
