DON'T USE URGENT IN THE TITLE OF A NEW THREAD!

Urgent is a personal vision to the case, for others urgent might not be the case.

Besides, use complete subjects, instead of one word. (summarize what the post is about, so people here can easily find it back or know if they can help on forehand, knowlegde about the subject.)

my 2 cents

Yawn... Did anyone say the magic word 'urgent'? I can't see anything urgent here. Oh wait - Attempted murder - kernel is panicking!!!

On a serious note, perhaps Jeremy/the mods could introduce some restrictions on creating titles so that if someone uses the word 'urgent' in the title, it will not let them submit the post (displaying some sort of error/warning).

Just my 6pence

As was said--this subject line will be ignored by almost everyone, especially on a forum as busy as this one.
What distribution? If it's Fedora, then it might be a known bug--you have to get into grub, which Fedora brilliantly made difficult by setting time out to 0 and add a line.

Hi,

Now that you've been spanked and disciplined;

Welcome to LQ!

Please read the LQ Rules again.

You need to be a little more informative about your problem. Which distribution and version? Kernel you are attempting to use. System information and hardware specifications for the problem.

I suggest that you use the next two links;

Let's see---6:55AM in California: Just waking up, perhaps with some degree of hangover.

New York--9:55: Hangover under control--on the way to church

England--2:55PM: In the park with the kids, on the golf course, at the beach----whereever---but surely not sitting at a computer.

France--3:55PM: Similar

Further east, we start having some language issues: In eastern Europe and Asia, the word "urgent" could have a very different meaning.


Seriously, boyshey: We do want to help you, but you will at least have to tell us what distribution (version) of Linux you installed, any problems or error message during installation----and any other details that you can.

I don't know the ins and outs of RHEL but that looks like a very old kernel. Is RHEL4 a very old release?

Problems or error messages during installation??

Did you allow it to use the defaults during installation, or did you do anything custom or special?

Other details?

Dear Sirs,

I protest against the discrimination of the word ``urgent''.

Yours faithfully,

The kernel number makes sense. I'm not exactly sure which kernel RHEL4 uses, but even the latest 5.x goes no higher than 2.6.18_whatever.

I wonder if it still might be that bug I linked to above--might be worth trying that solution, that is, add
scsi_mod.scan=sync

to the kernel line in grub and see if it fixes the problem. I don't have high hopes, but it's worth a shot.

Protest all you want. The use is not going to get you much response within your query title. You will usually get a quick response about the use of the word and not the request for aid reply.

According to the OP, this looks like a new installation, so I'd recommend using a the latest RHEL (5.3) or Centos equivalent if you want free.
Did you possibly ask for the boot disk/partition to be part of the lvm at install time?
That's not going to work.
Incidentally, if you want to check out the system, you can use the

linux rescue

option from the installation DVD. Just type that in at the cmd line prompt.
