Anyone have problems with this kernel? After

line 68: multipath: command not found
After it dumped me into a shell without root or /boot mounted, I did
the "mount --bind" and chroot thing and built a new initrd with
mkinitrd and it still didn't work.
I expect I had the same issue yesterday. Unfortunately this is a remote
system without access to the console.
Please check bugzilla if there is a bug open on this. If not file a new
one and add as many as possible details (root fs uses a LABLE or is
identyfied by the by-id). Also please add me to cc.
Also, is there any way to tell SuSE NOT to delete the
old kernel when
installing a new one.
Unfortunately I don't know a way for openSUSE 10.3. That's one of the
reasons why I use yum.
With 10.3 and 11.0 the update stack luckily got back to a reliable state
With 11.1 zypper will even be able to maintain multiple versions of one
RPM. See the "multiversion" parameter of a recent /etc/zypp/zypp.conf .
