Boot from media - Unable to mount root fs

Reported by: wirunc Owned by: bruno
Priority: high Milestone: 3.2.0
Component: mondo Version: 3.0.4
Severity: blocker Keywords:


I recently burned a new mondo DVD and I was able to boot from the new media. When I request a media compare and it starts, I get a kernel panic:

'Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)'

I'm using the test mondo release as provided by Bruno as part of the verification of ticket #735. This was the first media from that release that I've ever tried to boot from.

# rpm -q -a | grep -i mondo

# rpm -q -a | grep -i mindi

From what I could tell, the boot media creation was successful. I've attached the logs from that creation session. I did install the packages in the correct order: busybox, mindi, mondo.

Thinking I might have a bad burner/player, I attempted a boot on a separate, but identical, piece of hardware, but running 'nuke'. Same problem with the kernel panic. The hardware is a DELL Optiplex 760 - right out of the box.

I would appreciate any assistance/advice.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I finally had time to look at this bug report and think I have fixed the issue on RHEL6 with rev [3324]. Thanks for your report.

New test versions are available at  ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/6/x86_64 that should be working better.
