I've installed Kubuntu 5.04 Hoary Hedgehog yesterday and I'm having problems with the 2.6.11-1-686 kernels (normal and smp) which I installed via kynaptic.
When booting with either one of the 686-kernels I get an error message during the boot-process:
VFS: Can't find ext3 on hda3
The rest of the boot-process seems normal.
But I don't even use ext3 on hda3.
Here's my /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 / reiserfs defaults 0 1
/dev/hda2 /boot reiserfs notail 0 2
/dev/hdb1 /home reiserfs defaults 0 2
/dev/hda4 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
After a few minutes of using Kubuntu with the 686-kernel it freezes and i'll have to push the reset-button. Then I also get a "Filesystem is NOT clean" message and some more error messages regarding the filesystem during the boot-process. Those are gone when I do a normal reboot with either the 686 or the 2.6.10-5-386.
Someone suggested that it could be due to lvm and reiserfs not working together so I did a
sudo apt-get remove lvm2 lvm10 lvm-common.
However, that didn't fix the ext3 message on bootup.
When doing a normal PC shutdown, I also get a kernel panic with the 686 kernels, none with the 386.
What can be done to fix this ?
My specs are:
P4 3.2GHz 512kb cache HT
2*512MB DDR ram (Kingston, running in dual-channel, linear mode)
45GB Western Digital 5400rpm
120GB Samsung 7200rpm
Dual-Boot WinXP Pro(hda1 Fat32) and Kubuntu 5.04 Hoary Hedgehog.
Before I switched to Kubuntu I used Fedora Core 3 with the 2.6.11-1.14_FC3-686 (standard and smp) kernel and had no problems at all.
