Hello,

I do not understand, I still cannot boot on the
new
kernel:
2.6.23.12-52.fc7

This is my grub.conf:
boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,7)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
password --md5 $1$Ey8yydw2$Ia5NHuLvdjduWOKIJM57u0

         initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.12-52.fc7.img

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.

If you do an ls in /boot directory, what do you see?

is the kernel in there,
config-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7      System.map-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
config-2.6.23.12-52.fc7       System.map-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
grub/                         vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img  vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
initrd-2.6.23.12-52.fc7.img



What does
$ rpm -qa kernel
return?
kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
kernel-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
kernel-devel-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
kernel-doc-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
kernel-headers-2.6.23.12-52.fc7
