boot problem

Running Suse 9.2
After the latest kernel update (21-12-2004) linux won't
boot with message:

bla bla bla bla
initrd (HD0,2)/boot/initrd
Error 15 File not found

Previous updates went smooth

Seeing as there are no posts so far, I'll give it a go

I never dealt with loading kernels, so I'm not sure of the functionality you have. I would boot with a Suse Live CD or whatever linux boot disk you want. Then
cd /boot
ls -l
and check you have something like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 2004-11-08 14:29 initrd -> initrd-2.6.5-7.111-default
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1276768 2004-11-08 14:29 initrd-2.6.5-7.111-default
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 2004-11-08 14:28 vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-2.6.5-7.111-default
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1470253 2004-10-14 11:27 vmlinuz-2.6.5-7.111-default

You need to make sure your initrd file is symbolically linked to initrd-version number. You also need to check that initrd-version exists. I have a .gz backup of vmlinuz, but none of initrd.

Hope this helps.

boot problem

Fixed the problem already, link to initrd was not valid anymore. Booted
from CD1, mounted /boot fixed it and worked again.
Sorry that i didn't reply sooner

There is good thingy about Suse Install CD that you can always boot and choose "installation" and then "repair installed system"
