Default kernel26 2.6.35.8-1 (BUG - x86_64 Fails to Boot - see closed bug 20918)

Tobias,

Updated an x86_64 box to 2.6.35.8-1 and the boot hangs at the very start with
the following error:

Booting 'Arch Linux on Archangel'

root (hd1,5)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, Partition type 0x83
Kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/mapper/nvidia_baacca_jap5 ro vga=794

Error 24: Attempt to access block outside partition

Press any key to continue...


This is the same boot problem we have seen with 4 out of 6 of the past new
kernel releases. This is the same issue reported in closed bug 20918. It looks
like there has been a regression. All of the information in bug 20918 is current
for this box. Let me know what else you need and if you want me to reopen the
bug report.

Thanks.

P.S. kernel26-lts-2.6.32.25-2-x86_64 boots just fine as does suse 11.
Downgrading to kernel26-2.6.35.7-1-x86_64 fixes the problem, so the issue is
with 2.6.35.8-1.

That's a grub error and has no relation to any kernel update.

I know that, but it has something to do with the kernel and/or dmraid because
LTS boot just fine with the same menu.lst and kernel kernel26-2.6.35.7-1 boot
just fine with the same menu.lst, but upgrading to 2.6.35.8-1 kills the box. While:

pacman -U kernel26-2.6.35.7-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
kernel26-headers-2.6.35.7-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

fixes it.

I know it looks like grub, but all kernels except 2.6.35.8-1 work??

This is what the GRUB documentation says about this error:

http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/legacy/grub.html#Stage2-errors

24 : Attempt to access block outside partition
This error is returned if a linear block address is outside of the disk
partition. This generally happens because of a corrupt filesystem on
the disk or a bug in the code handling it in GRUB (it's a great
debugging tool).

Have you made a complete system update with pacman -Syu and
particularly updated lvm2 in case you are using this?

Thanks Heiko,

Yes, I've done the complete system update with pacman -Syu. (don't use lvm2,
but yes it was updated as well)

I've contacted the dm-devel list and I'm waiting on a response. I have another
x84_64 box running dmraid and the updates installed fine and it boots. It looks
like there is a dmraid issue with the nVidia MCP78S [GeForce 8200] SATA
Controller that just gets tripped by some Russian-roulette oddity in the kernel
builds -- dunno??

I'll report back if/when I get an answer from the redhat guys.
