I just upgraded the kernel via Yast on my dual opteron system. (I'm using suse 9.2 pro.) Now it gives me a kernel panic. The error is something like this:
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.8-24.10-um/kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko': -1 Invalid module format Waiting for device /dev/hda2 to appear: ok rootfs: major=3 minor=2 devn=770 Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,2)
The boot process halts at this point.
Did yast somehow give me the wrong kernel? It was the only kernel available for download and this was the first kernel upgrade I've done on this system. This system was freshly installed yesterday. Nothing outside of the suse distro is installed on it.
