I spent a frustrating 2 hours today trying to boot. Has anybody run into a
problem being unable to boot after installing uswsusp?
I got a kernel panic "Unable to mount root fs..." claiming it couldn't mount
the filesystem with ext2, ext3 and some other filesystems, but notably not
JFS, which is what the filesystem really was. This happened on both the
kernel I was running when I installed uswsusp (2.6.30-6-server), and my
backup kernel (2.6.28-11-server), even though the initrd for the backup
hasn't been updated (the other initrd was updated in the post-install for
$ zcat /boot/initrd.img-2.6.30-6-server | cpio -t | grep jfs
So, it should have jfs available. Eventually I just booted from the live
CD, chrooted to my root fs, removed the uswsusp package, and rebooted
without trouble. I'll file a bug, but didn't see anything like this in
google, so am just wondering if it's affected anybody else.
