I updated to kernel 3.3.7-1 yesterday and after a reboot it panics out.
looking in /boot, i see there's no initramfs-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64.img
i've tried looking for this file in the rpm, but although the archive reports it available, it seems to be missing, i tried this:
yumdownloader --destdir /tmp/ kernel
rpm -qpl /tmp/kernel-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm | while read f; do if [[ ! -f "$f" && ! -d "$f" ]] ; then echo "could not find $f"; fi; done
> could not find /boot/initramfs-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64.img
rpm2cpio /tmp/kernel-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm | cpio -ivd
find . -name init\*
so it's not extracting the file initramfs-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64.img even though rpm -qpl is saying it's in the archive.
At the moment i'm having to boot to previous kernel, but is there anything wrong with either the kernel rpm, or how can i fix my problem if i can't extract the file from the archive?
