F10 won't boot up after upgrade: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No suc

Hello,

I have upgraded my PC to F10 and new kernel 2.6.27.5-117 won't boot up - it stops short at

The kernel 2.6.27.5-37.fc9.x86_64 works fine and boots up in no time.

Has anyone similar problems?

Regards

Frank

Hello,

I have the same problem: kernel-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 & kernel-2.6.27.7-134.fc10.x86_64 doesn't work.

I can boot the machine, with the fc10 kernel's, but to do so, I have to insert a cd in the tray and choose to boot from the hard drive (skipping the cd). Same setup without the cd in the tray, won't boot.

After reading your post, I've installed kernel-2.6.27.5-41.fc9.x86_64 and that solved the problem.

FYI: I'm having this problem on a Dell PE2950, on other machines, like Dell Latitude D830 and the older Dell PE 1550, the FC10 kernels work fine.


Regards,
Ronny.

Hello,

Found the solution in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466607

Make a file /etc/sysconfig/mkinitrd with this:
MODULES="scsi_wait_scan"

And then run
mkinitrd -v -f /boot/initrd-XXXXXX.img XXXXXX

Now, the fc10 kernels boot fine.

Regards,
Ronny.

I have the same problem, but have grub as my boot loader. How do I get grub to load this module at boot time, so the system can boot?

TIA

OOPS! Nevermind.

Just found the kernel parm to use. FWIW: add scsi_mod.scan=sync on the kernel line.

also may want to try kernel boot parameter rootwait, which worked for me with F10 + 2.6.28.4 kernel.org kernel.
