[Solved] kernel-2.6.33-0.40.rc7.git0.fc13.x86_64 won't boot
Hi all. I'm not sure if it was a momentary lapse in judgement or what, but I enabled the rawhide repo last night and downloaded the updates. I used a terminal, not yumex. I was even logged out of my desktop.
After the update, I rebooted and the kernel-2.6.33-0.40.rc7.git0.fc13.x86_64 wouldn't boot. I saw another thread about the PAE version of the kernel and checked, and there is an initrd in the grub file.
What happens after I select that kernel is that I get a black screen with a cursor blinking at the top left of the screen. ctrl-alt-del won't restart, have to hard reboot. I'm now using the most recent F12 kernel-184.108.40.206-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64 and to get that to boot I have to hit escape, or it just hangs before it gives me a login screen (but the little f logo loads...) -- that might be due to the rsyslog issue. Since I can at least boot to the F12 kernel I could just wait until the next kernel update to see if that fixes anything. But I thought I'd ask here if anyone has any ideas...
