If you see this on the remote console:
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Ask yourself the following: Was the e2label for the root partition been changed?
The LABEL must match in /etc/fstab and grub.conf
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1Solution:
- Powercycle the system.
- At the boot menu, edit the grub configuration.
- Continue with the boot process
- su as root
- view LABEL of the boot partition e.g. e2label /dev/sda1
- compare with /etc/fstab and /etc/grub.conf values.
- Edit files as needed.
cp -p /etc/grub.conf /etc/old/grub.conf.20090710
