Thread: Cannot boot OpenSUse 11

  1. #1

    Exclamation Cannot boot OpenSUse 11

    Here is the short description of my system installed:

    The bootloader GRUB was installed on /dev/sda1

    RAID array /dev/md0 was created from /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2. It was mounted as '/'

    RAID array /dev/md1 created from /dev/sda3 and /dev/sdb3 was mounted as '/home'.

    The problem arose after I had updated the kernel - the system would not boot - The GRUB would fall with error 15.

    What steps should I take to recover my system?

    This is a file not found error. Try starting the box up using the install CD and
    select rescue mode. Verify that your boot information is correct.

    Well, I booted using cd and tried to repair but the opensuse won't see my raid arrays. rescue cd sees them but I don't know how to proceed next. Read in the forums that I should proceed with mkinitrd but chroot doesn't work

    eldar g,

    when you boot, how far do you get. Do you get the GRUB boot menu or does the
    error occured even before the GRUB menu is displayed?

    Unhappy Re: Cannot boot OpenSUse 11

    I see the GRUB menu. Then the error appears. I tried making mkinitrd but now another error appears: the system says

    "mdadm: /dev/md0 has been started"
    "resume device not found (ignoring)"
    "Waiting for device /dev/md0 to appear: !boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    "!boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    "!boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    "!boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    "!boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    ...
    "!boot/01-devfunctions.sh: line 68: multipath: command not found"
    "Could not find /dev/md0."
    "Want me to fall back to /dev/md0? (Y/n)"

    Did you upgrade kernel-base and kernel-extra? It seems the system can't mount /dev/md0. This may happen when RAID module or FS module not loaded (missing?).

    Could you mount your root partition and check if /boot/grub/menu.lst points to the correct vmlinux/vmlinuz image?

    To chroot you need to mount the root partition somewhere.
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    2 Lazy_Kent:

    How can I load those modules? For instance, when booting system repair? It doesn't see /dev/md0 and tells that partitions are incorrect offering to fix them, though I know that when I boot a rescue cd and mount raid arrays they are ok.
