Boot fails with /dev/md0 and Kernel-Update


Hello Everyone !

After updating Suse 9.3 to the lastest Kernel 2.6.11.4-21.11 Ive got trouble booting from /dev/md0 as root-system.

I believe it is caused by an improper initrd because I get an kernel panic with /dev/md0 -

I use /dev/hda2 and /dev/hdc2 as /dev/md0 and reiserfs....

Do I have to update the initrd manually or is this a bug in YOU when updating via YOU ???

I cant boot anymore, so I started the Rescue System and "downgraded" all required files including the kernel. After updating to all recent version (without Kernel), I got an running system again. Strange !

Thanks !!!

MfG......Detlef

Try to install the kernel update as additional kernel.
Usually mkinitrd is made by the "You-kernel-update" procedure.

Thanks for the hint !

I tried to update the kernel via a VMWare-Machine (with RAID-1) and checked out the /etc/sysconfig/kernel. The needed modules are correctly defined in this file. After I started mkinitrd Ive got no problems....

Perhaps YOU did not run mkinitrd after the kernel-update automatically.

So, in the future I will start mkinitrd manually after each kernel-update, preventing the system to lock up missing some modules ......

Problem solved !

Thank you all !

MfG.......Detlef
