boot problem in suse 11


Hi,

I have installed suse 11 on one of my system. i am facing problem while booting from my active grub.

my active grub entry is as below:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 - 2.6.27.11-1 (/dev/sda8)###
title SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 - 2.6.27.11-1 (/dev/sda8)
kernel (hd0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.11-1-default root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD3200JS-22PDB0_WD-WCAPD2997677-part8 vga=0x314 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD3200JS-22PDB0_WD-WCAPD2997677-part3 splash=silent crashkernel=256M-:128M@16M showopts
initrd (hd0)/boot/initrd-2.6.27.11-1-default


in that i am not able to understand roo=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD3200JS-22PDB0_WD-WCAPD2997677-part8 part. can any one explain above line what it indicate.

I tried to replace that line with /dev/sda8 but i am facing problem "can nor mount selected partition"

can anyone tell me how to solve above issue

Thanks

There are several ways of identifying the boot partition and openSUSE chooses to use ids, which I also find difficult to comprehend.

Still, I suspect that we need to address the problem you are having, not diagnose whether the id format is correct. (If the openSUSE installer put it there, I bet it is fine.) Therefore, what is your actual problem (for example, SUSE does not boot)?

Great. I am glad that you got it working. Also, thanks for reporting back, since someone else may have the same problem and find your post.
