Booting stops after: Unable to access resume device, mount: could not mount ...
After updating kernel 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 my computer stops booting after the message:
Unable to access resume device
Mount: could not mount filesystem (/dev/root)
With grub I'm able to boot the previous version and I notice some changes:
1. My 'good' configuration boots from root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 (I kept the default lvm-names) and my 'bad' config boots from root=/dev/dm-0.
2. When I type mount in terminal after booting the 'good' config I see the mount points are indeed /dev/dm-0 and so on. In LVM-manager I can't see them, because I see the 'old' names (LogVol and so on). Where is the mapping? LVM manager says the LogVols are not mounted...
Can anybody explain this to me? For what I see, my disk is devided in LVMs with the access /dev/VolGroupXX/LogVolXX and somehow there is an extra entry with names like /dev/dm-X.
Then, I rescued: chroot blabla and I tried to mkinitrd and so on. I also swapon, mkswap and swapoff, but no progress. The only change was that /dev/root not found changed in /dev/dm-3 (propably my swap partition)...
I also mkinitrd with scsi_wait_scan, but no result.
