Default F15 Upgrade kernel won't run.

My computer will not boot the F15 kernel after doing a
preupgrade.** Nothing happens when the boot process usually starts
running.* Not a single line of startup is displayed on the screen.

This happens both if I run preupgrade or preupgrade-cli.*

Everything seems to go fine during the preupgrade process.** All the files download and run fine, no errors or anything.


Other kernels on the computer boot fine.

Its like it can't find one of the boot files.

Any ideas ?

Thanks !

Default F15 Upgrade kernel won't run.

Run your machine with the rescue mode.
And check the contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf
which is mounted under /mnt/sysimage/boot/grub/grub.conf

In my case, when F15 upgrade was done, F15 didn't startup
and I found that the contents of grub.conf was broken.
So I commented out the lines of upgraded kernel part in the grub.conf
with '#'.
Finally I can successfully start F15 with previous kernel.

Anyway. let me know the contents of your grub.conf.

Hi,



It seems that things are more compilcated than I thought.

I recommend that you will backup the data to another USB disk

and restore them after clean install of F15.



I think you can boot with previous F14 kernel

if you change the following to grub.conf



[1] Change the following line



default=1

to

default=0



[2] Comment out the following 3 lines with '#'



#title Upgrade to Fedora 15 (Lovelock)

#kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade
repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade
ks=hd:UUID=68c84152-0834-4e6d-b680-067752edc827:/upgrade/ks.cfg

#initrd /upgrade/initrd.img



Good luck.

Default F15 Upgrade kernel won't run.

Commenting those lines out causes the F14 (non upgrade) kernel to run,
thus preventing the upgrade from completing. Which is what I am
trying to achieve.

In case its been missed, I'm trying to upgrade from F14 to F15.

In case you missed it, using preupgrade is a hit or miss proposition.
The simplest recovery method is to abandon all the files that were
downloaded and install from a CD.

I used to upgrade that way. * I did miss the memo.

Which CD does one use these days ?* F15 Live runs fine on the machine in question.* How exactly does one initiate the upgrade ?


Thanks !

So did I. The first time I used it was to go from F9 to F11 (I skipped
F10 because it had so many install problems.) on my desktop. Since
then, I've used it on my desktop for every new version through F14
without ever the slightest difficulty, except for when I had to enlarge
/boot.

This lists two UUIDs and doesn't have an entry for the F15 kernel.

Do you have two grub.conf files? I had similar problems last November
when preupgrade modified an inactive version on the 'wrong' disk. It
worked after I copied over the new lines.
