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

         root (hd0,7)
#        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro
root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet

         kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro
root=/dev/sda8 rhgb quiet
selinux=0
         initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.12-52.fc7.img


title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
         root (hd0,7)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
ro
root=/dev/sda8 rhgb
quiet selinux=0
         initrd
/boot/initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.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

*** message truncated ****
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


Can you remove the line

 #        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro
 root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
 selinux=0
Yes, I already tried to remove this line without success.

so that it matches the

title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)

one.  If you have done that, and it did not work, then there might be
something wrong with the initrd/or something else.

Yes, but what ??????

The other strange thing is that when I replace the initrd which does not
work by the one works, it does not help. I have other kinds of errors.

Regards,

Antonio
