Subject: [gentoo-hppa] Suddenly cannot open root partition
Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2007 00:48:24

I have the following issue:  after a power outage, my B2000 rebooted. It 
loaded the kernel, mounted the root partition read-only, but when it should 
open it read-write I got the following:

checking root partition
	fask.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda4
			the superblock cannot be read or does not describe.....blah blah
	*Filesystem couldn't be fixed.

But the partition is good as I can check it, mount it, read and write on it 
from an install CD.

dmesg shows the following:

break 0,0: pid=970 command='udevd'
Your system ate a SPARC! Gah! ....and the cow :-)
udevd (pid 970). Breakpoint (code 0)

The problem seems to be with udev. Any idea or workaround?
