dracut in kernel-3.3.5-2.fc16.i686 and kernel-3.3.6-3.fc16.i686 fails to mount root
 
The pertinent failure message in both of these kernels is:

[ 29.653980] dracut Warning: No root device

The system then drops into the shell.
Bug ID 822792 at bugzilla.redhat.com is about this problem.
However, I am stuck booting kernel-3.3.4-3.fc16.i686 which does not have
this problem.
I have received no further updates on this problem, which might be
unique to my laptop???
I have also uploaded to the bug the full log of dracut and a file output
of rpm -qa in order

for the devs to see which package might be the culprit.

So, I looked a little further, and found the cause.
The UUID in /etc/fstab was created by the clean install of fc16 from DVD.
That uuid is

259d7b44-1122-42cc-b504-3dd40027d3b9

whereas dracut in the 2 kernels that are failing to mount root, thinks
the uuid should be 03f82b3c-5163-465b-a4c3-3bcb349a1cc4

fstab contains the line

UUID=03f82b3c-5163-465b-a4c3-3bcb349a1cc4 / ext3 defaults 0 0

as stated above, kernel kernel-3.3.4-3.fc16.i686
has no problem mounting root with uuid 03f82b3c-5163-465b-a4c3-3bcb349a1cc4
So, I guess I will save old fstab, recompute the blkid of all devices in
fstab

and reboot.
