centos 6.3 booting issue/errors
hi i m pretty much new to linux.
os- centos 6.3
i updated the system, fine and restarted it.
it failed to start up.
then i did a fsck(on mounted filesystem, now i regret though)
now it shows the folowing errors ,
1. mount : you must specify the filesystem type.
2. kernel panic : not syncing , Attempted to Kill init
pid: 1, comm , init not tainted #(version number)
switching to text mode..
it hangs there. not when i specify rdshell as a parameter in kernel , from the grub loader , i drop into dracut shell. but commands like fsck etc , are not recognised there.
in /etc the file fstab is also missing. i tried creating it , similar to mstab, but of no use, it gets removed after the restart.
please help me out.
Have you tried booting it from CD/DVD and run fsck to the drive not being mounted. Plain fsck without using a switch and just go through it with 'yes'. It worked for me, though I don't make any guaranty to yours. Nevertheless the partitions is quite broken it's worth a try.
there was a recent update the had a bug on editing the menu.lis for a new kernel
can you use an old kernel
during the 3 sec countdown select the previous kernel to boot from
( hit enter then use the down arrow to highlight the previous kernel
hit enter to boot from that one )
read your /boot/grub/menu.lis file
compare the top boot line with with the one you are NOW booted into
is there a blank entry for " root = " then nothing ( there should be a uuid in that empty spot)
copy the old root=????? to the new line
same problem with the old kernels..
