problem with the kernel 2.6.8


After the installation of the new kernel-2.6.8,I reboot the computer.
when checking the rootfile system ,the error below come up:
fsck.27
fsck.ext2 no such file or directory
when trying to open /dev/hdc6
/dev/hdc6
the super block could not be read or does not describ a correct ext2 filesystem .if the device is valid and it really contain a ext2 filesystem ,then the supperblock is corrupt and you might try running e2fsck with alternate superblock
then it prompted for my root password for maintiance,I entered the password ,and entered the single user mode ,can't startx and do other things.
the format of root my filesystem is ext3,and I have compiled the ext3 support in my kernel configuration.
I have tried to skip the filesystem check by modify the system startup scripts,but other errors occurred.
Help me please !thanks!

The only help I can offer is this: I read on another board (don't remember which one) that kernel 2.6.8 has problems which are not fully corrected 2.6.9. The solution offered on that board was to downgrade to the last functional kernel version, 2.6.7.
You should try a bit of google searching on the topic before you proceed.

Is that partition with the error your root partition? It shouldn't give an EXT2 error if you have EXT3 on it unless it's specified faulty somewhere. Maybe there's an error in your /etc/fstab file?

Is ext3 built in or a module? It must be built in to boot.

I'm not sure I understand you. Did you convert an ext2
partition to ext3, or did you just change the type of the
filesystem in your /etc/fstab file?

My root filesystem is in the ext3 ,I never changed it.But orignally the type of root patrtion in /etc/fstab is ext2,before I begin testing my 2.6 kernel ,it works well with 2.4.18.bf2.4,so I didin't notice it .
Well,I've got it now! The solution Google gave me is to remove the built in support for /dev filesystem support in when configuring the kernel ,which seems indespensable but actually caused the problem. I don't know why.
Hope it will help those who come across the similar problem and thanks for all who have posted to help me!
