Default No way to boot on 2.6.23.12-52.fc7

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
title Fedora (2.6.23.12-52.fc7)
root (hd0,7)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
selinux=0
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

If changing from root=/ to
root=/dev/sda8
does not work, remove the kernel through yum then
reinstall it and see if that cures your problem.

BTW, that kernel is working for me

I already tried something similar. I remove the kernel by using rpm -e
then I made yum update kernel
This does not install the last version of the kernel, but anyway,
the software updater finally reinstall the last the version.

Patrick,

Can you remove the line

# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7 ro
root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
selinux=0

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.

Regards,

Antonio

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

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 ?

*** 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

initrd-2.6.23.12-52.fc7.img




What does
$ rpm -qa kernel
return?

kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.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

I cannot find "boot=" in the grub manual. I do see it referenced but
unused in my Fedora grub.conf:

# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda

Note that the last line is commented out! Perhaps you should do the same.

I note with interest that you comment out a line that should work?
The errors you mention at the end would suggest that if you browse to
"/dev/sda8"/boot you would not find kernel
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7. To find out, boot into a working
linux partition, make a directory in /media called sda8 (humm - can
you boot to an extended partition??) and then mount using mount -t
ext3 /dev/sda8 /media/sda8. Then become root and browse to the disk
using cd /media/sda8/boot (or nautilus as root) and look for kernel
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.12-52.fc7.

Do you have "root (hd0,7)" in the stanza? I guess if you do I wonder
what gparted gets (using device sda) if you issue the "print" command.
I also wonder if you can boot from this partition if it is extended.

By "still cannot boot" what stopped it booting before this update?

That kernel boots for me, I didn't have to change anything to make it
boot.

Using the above grub.conf stanza for that kernel? Your sample grub.conf
is an exact copy of the file? There's no typing errors in the copy you
e-mailed?

By the way: CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, NOW! You've just shown the world the
hashsum for it, and that may be enough to crack it.

*Why* does using LABEL=/ cause it to use /dev/sdb? Do you have two
drives, is "/" the right label?

Try the following command to see what label is on /dev/sda8:

e2label /deb/sda8

This is odd. Does using "/dev/sda8" definitely work for the other
kernel?

Hi Tim,

thank for your comments.

By "still cannot boot" what stopped it booting before this update?

Because I had the same problem, never resolved, with the previous update
of the kernel (2.6.23.8 if I remember)


That kernel boots for me, I didn't have to change anything to make it
boot.

This is why I do not undertsand why ity does not work for me !



This is my grub.conf:
boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,7)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.23.12-52.fc7)

Like what ? I do not see any typo.
I already work around. I cannot see what is wrong. The kernel
2.6.21-1.3194 is absolutely fine, but not the new ones. Same syntax.




By the way: CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, NOW! You've just shown the world the
hashsum for it, and that may be enough to crack it.

Is it the password of grub ?



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,


*Why* does using LABEL=/ cause it to use /dev/sdb? Do you have two
drives, is "/" the right label?
The first time that I installed a FC7 I had a problem with the
root=LABEL=/ because I guess that I had 2 partitions on 2 different

drive with the same lable like /. So since that time, I avoid to use the
LABEL. When I will understand exactly what is going on, I will be able
to make more test. Right now, I have a kernel booting properly. Doing
the same thing and just booting another kernel should work and it does
not.

Try the following command to see what label is on /dev/sda8:

e2label /deb/sda8
Yes /dev/sda8 has a label /, as well as /dev/sdb5 which I only mount in
read-only.



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


This is odd. Does using "/dev/sda8" definitely work for the other

Yes
