My new kernel also hangs - my new grub.conf specifies:
kernel /vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-30.fc9.i686 ro root=/dev/dm-0
as the boot path and the new kernel says this path is invalid. My old kernel, which still boots fine, boots to:
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-18.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=d71ba8f9-3dbd-4f90-b611-cec48d0c92e4
Should I be able to switch the "ro root=" specification in grub.conf, between the two kernels, without doing any harm ?
6/10/2008 - I am now able to boot to my new kernel because I did a complete install from the dvd, not just an upgrade. I kept a copy of my old rpm packages (/var/log/rpmpkgs) in my root directory as rpmpkgs.2008.06.09 and then did:
diff /var/log/rpmpkgs rpmpkgs.2008.06.09 > rpm-diff.txt
to find which packages were missing on my new installation.
