Hi Kumar,

Hi

I have a OpenSuse 10.3 with kernel (Linux version
2.6.22.17-0.1-default). Now I have tried to install another (keeping the
old one, not updating or patching) kernel version 2.6.25-rc5-git2-109.6
downloaded from the opensuse factory. Initially it asked me to update
the following

1. rpm (4.4.2-182 updated version)
2. devicemapper (1.02.24-16 updated version)
3. lvm2 (2.02.33-12 updated version)
4. udev (119 updated version)

After that the new kernel installed without error, with the following
output:
**********************************************************************
rpm -ivh kernel-default-2.6.25-109.6.i586.rpm
Preparing... ###########################################

*************************************************************************

But now if I boot the new kernel from Grub it stops after a point and
gives me the error
/sbin/udevtrigger no such file found
/sbin/udevsettle no such file found
/dev/sda7 not found

and it dumps me to a shell prompt. If I boot with the old kernel
everything works fine. I am using a single SATA harddisk on my machine.


How can I fix this?

Please update mkinitrd rpm, too.

Cheers,

Hannes
