Hello, I have a problem with my openSUSE installation.
I tried to upgrade (from openSUSE 11) by manually changing all repositories to 11.1 ones. The upgrade process went smoothly except a kvm related package which failed to upgrade (but I suspect this shouldn’t be that critical).
After the reboot though, when the kernel is loading, it comes up with the error
FATAL: could not load /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-4-pae/modules.dep: File does not exist.
and after that
waiting for device /dev/disk/by-id/SATA(root id) to appear… not found.
At that point it shows a [Y/n] decision about whether to skip the problem (or sth like that) but the keyboard is not responsive (even the Caps lock or F-lock keys do not change any LEDs).
The thing is, as I can see, the file asked DOES exist in this directory (I double-checked, no version mismatches)!
So, the kernel does not see the modules.dep, but it exists. It is somewhat frustrating. Any suggestions?
First of all, thank you for your time!
Now, unfortunately your guess is right, it is the root partition. I reckon it doesn’t load any modules, as it doesn’t find the /lib/modules/uname -r/modules.dep file.
Thing is, why it doesn’t see it, and how can I make it! Unfortunately a reinstall is somewhat difficult (I had some programs -now hard to find- installed in /opt/), so if another solution exists I would be most grateful!
