Kernel 2868 causing a kernel panic


Here is what happens when I try to run kernel-2.6.18-1.2868.fc6 which I updated using SMART. This is a desktop PC.

Code:
ACPI: Getting cpuindex for acpiid 0x1
ACPI: Getting cpuindex for acpiid 0x2
ACPI: Getting cpuindex for acpiid 0x3

Red Hat Nash version 5.1.19.0.2 starting
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory

ERROR opening /dev/console
Trying to use fd 0 instead
WARNING: can't access (null)
exec of init ((null)) failed!!! Bad Address
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init
Kernel 2849 still works without issue

Also why is it that SMART doesn't delete the kernel that yum normally would?

What is your hardware? Are you using a 965series motherboard?

Try these options i.e, pass as parameters to kernel.
1) all-generic-ide
2) irqpoll
3) pci=nommconf

The options you gave earlier didn't work.

Different BIOS have different menu configurations. What is it that you are looking for?

The solution to the problem was a simple one. There was one difference between the 2849 and 2868 grub kernel lines. The 2849 had root=LABEL=/ whereas 2868 had root=/dev/hdd6. Once I changed the 2868 line to reflect what the 2849 line was showing it booted without issues.

I had previously seen the difference however I didn't think it would matter as /dev/hdd6 is mounted as /. And it isn't part of a LVM physical volume, just a reiserfs partition.
