Well, I rebooted. I'm also back to my old kernel. The new kernel broke all sorts of things. I thought about writing down the errors until I saw how many there was. It was PAGES of problems. It booted to a prompt tho. One thing I noticed, LVM failed. I have a drive that has LVM on it and it would not mount although LVM service was started. I even restarted it and it reported no errors when starting. I dunno. So, this appears to be nowhere close to fixed. Right now, this is on my nerves again. Let me know what you want me to post but right now, I'm going to go have a sit down. I'll count those things hanging from the ceiling or something. I can't recall what they call them but I count them sometimes. If I was eyeball to eyeball with the dev that started this, I could patent and new color of purple/blue. You know, hands around the neck and all. :/ I'm attaching the dmesg from the failed attempt. It's a whopper. I'm not sure all the errors are in there either. Here's grub line: title=Initramfs-new_kernel root (hd0,0) kernel /bzImage-3.2.11-2 root=/dev/sda3 init=/sbin/init rd.debug rd.udev.debug nox initrd /initramfs-3.2.11.img I also tried other settings for the root line but that was the only one that worked. Thoughts? Should I just switch and save myself the aggravation? Back to my hole. Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words!
