Bug in upgrade to 2.6.24-17-generic & to 2.6.24-18-generic in UBUNTU
Long time nobody answered this problem up to now.
First of all, thanks for the comments!
Finally, I started both kernel versions in recovery mode and I could
find out the reason of the problem without finding the solution.
There were in both cases the same failure report:
Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount
mount: Mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/9068-E8C6
on /root failed: no such device
mount: Mounting /root on /host failed: invalid argument
ALERT! /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk does not exists.
Dropping to a shell!
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
When checked the HDD D:\ partition under Windows or
under Ubuntu (running in grub the kernel 126.96.36.199-generic
instead of the two unoperable ones of 17 and 18 gen.)
I found there the ubuntu and all the claimed subdirectories
and the disks that were not found by the 17 and18 kernels.
Possibly, during the upgrade with dpkg one of the configuration
files were wrong due to a bug and when started the 'ash' shell it
could not work and react to any command because of the missing
necessary 'background' virtual disk contents. This is why the
BusyBox did not give a correct response and I could not achieve to exit.
What can be and where to find the wrong script or configuration file to repair.
Maybe, one of you give me the answer, but I am unable to correct
the corresponding init.rd file if it is the responsible.
I tried to correct the problem writing into the terminal the followings:
sudo dpkg --clear-avail && sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg --configure -a
In the /boot/grub/menu.lst I found:
title Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=UUID=9068-E8C6 loop=/ubuntu/disks/root.disk ro single
title Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=UUID=9068-E8C6 loop=/ubuntu/disks/root.disk ro quiet splash
The above is the same in case of kernel 2.6.24-18-generic.
Maybe somebody corrects the problem and this short
description of the failure report will help to find the bad spot.
Thanks again and, until the problem has been solved i am using
the kernel 2.6.24-16-generic.
By the way! Can I delete the useless parts and files installed
