           Summary: newest breezy kernel won't boot scsi disk based machine
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kernel-package
        AssignedTo: fabbione at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: keith at keithirwin.com
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

The latest apt-get kernel for breezy, 2.6.12-6-686-smp won't boot.  (Hoary -->
Breezy) I get the following:


Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
[4294671.654000] audit(1124308487.652:0): initialized
/scripts/init-premount/usplash: 44: chmod: not found
  /dev/cdrom: open failed: no medium found
  Unable to find volume group "sda2"
ALERT! /dev/sda2 does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!


It doesn't really drop to a shell.  /dev/sda2 is my / partition.

Not sure what other info you might need.

I do see some sort of graphical screen meant to hide kernel messages, but then
get the above back before it stops.

An earlier kernel, 2.6.12-3-686-smp seems to work fine.

>From device manager, the scsi subsystem is (or so I assume):

  info.vendor  = LSI Logic / Symbios Logic
  info.product = 53c1030 PCI-X-Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI
