(i know this is in bad taste, and I apologize but I actually posted this thread in the arch side of the forum too, if I mod wishes to delete the older one I wouldn't disagree, however I feel that this section would be a better place for my problem)
Today I started off installing Arch, I fallowed the Beginner guide: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide
to a T, One thing that I believe may have caused the majority of my troubles here is that fact that I opted to use persistent block device naming for my system: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/..._device_naming
, because I often swap out my HDD's and have different disks loaded at any give time.
In any case I go through the install doing little adjustment to the default configuration outside of that and changing my host name in the etc/hosts/ file.
Basically the only place i veered off at was when as i said decided to do persist block device naming, which required me to change my fstab:
/dev/sdb1 /boot ext2 defaults 0 1
/dev/sdb2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb3 / ext3 defaults 0 1
/dev/sdb4 /home ext3 defaults 0 1
/dev/disk/by-uuid/04a8052f-7649-4fa0-9164-6e5d7e4973c2 /boot ext2 defaults 0 1
/dev/disk/by-uuid/cd713305-30b9-4bb2-a28a-a7ff82f1490a swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-uuid/a9ac24c9-69d9-4669-a28c-1fb270fa87d3 / ext3 defaults 0 1
/dev/disk/by-uuid/1619dbeb-c30c-40fb-a94b-9356089c1aea /home ext3 defaults 0 1
It required that I modify my grubs menu.lst from using the "kernal /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sdb1 ro vga=773 to this:
# (0) Arch Linux
title Arch Linux
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/04a8052f-7649-4fa0-9164-6e5d7e4973c2 ro vga=773
# (1) Arch Linux
title Arch Linux Fallback
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/04a8052f-7649-4fa0-9164-6e5d7e4973c2 ro
BTW /kernal26.img and /kernal26-fallback.img are located at 04a8052f-7649-4fa0-9164-6e5d7e4973c2 (sdb1 or /boot) as it shows here... I still don't understand why it's saying they can not be found....
I've played around with it a bit, but I can't seem to find where the problem is... could anyone here see an error that I do not?
