Installed on old Toshiba Tecra 550cdt laptop.
Installed fluxbuntu 7.10 alternate install: It installed fine but when I rebooted it hangs.
When I reboot in recovery mode it hangs then drops to busybox shell, the error is somthing like this:
check root= bootarg cat /proc/cmdline
or missing modules, devices cat /proc/modules ls /dev
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/***/ does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
Then gives me the initramfs prompt.
I can boot off the cd in rescue mode and make a shell in my root partion (/dev/hda1)
I then udated and upgraded everything I could (using apt-get) including upgrading to the 2.6.22-15-generic kernel (had 2.6.22-14-generic) no luck, I get the same error from booting any of them.
to no avail...
I also tried to edit the /ect/fstab and /grub/menu.lst for one of the kernels, to use:
/dev/hda1 instead of: uuid=***
I succeded, but it did not solve the problem, now it says it can't find the dev/hda1 instead of the uuid.
Any help would be appreciated, I have exhausted all the idea's I can find.
