System broken after upgrade to kernel-3.3.2-1.fc16.i686

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

I have just upgraded two systems to kernel-3.3.2-1.  One system (x86_64 hardware) upgraded flawlessly.  The other (i686 hardware) now won't boot.  The grub menu comes up allowing me to choose between:
    kernel-3.3.2-1.f16.i686   -- which fails (see below)
    kernel-3.3.0-0.f16.i686   -- which works
When I choose kernel-3.3.2-1, there is what seems like an exceptionally long pause, the system briefly displays some garbage, and then these messages appear:

dracut warning no root device "block:/dev/disk/by-uuid/2d...af"  found

dracut warning no root device "block:/dev/disk/by-uuid/2d...af"  found

dropping to debug shell

sh: 0 can't access tty:  job control turned off

dracut:/#

In fact, as blkid shows the device (partition) that the system appears to be looking for is not there.  However all the partitions that should be on the system are there, including the partition that is normally mounted on /boot.  Which must be so, since the previous kernel starts OK.

Questions:
  1. What's going on here?
  2. How can I fix it?
  3. How can I prevent this in the future?

Many thanks - jon
