Problems booting latest FC10 Kernel

Hi everyone, I'm having a few issues booting the latest two Fedora 10 Kernels.

I get the following error when attempting to boot :

mkrootdev: expected fs options
mount: missing mount point

*** The is attempts to load my Synaptics Touch Pad Driver, and simply sits there. ***

Here is my /etc/fstab entries

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
UUID=3c97e0a8-5e76-4cea-96dc-19ad15d4adf7 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 /datastore ext3 defaults 1 1


Here is my /etc/grub.conf

#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686.img
title Fedora (2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686.img
title Fedora (2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686.img



I can still boot the Fedora (2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686) without any problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

Hi all,

I figured out my problem. My /etc/fstab originally had the following entry: (I made a mistake, setting the mount point to / instead of /datastore).

/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1

The kernels were installed while this incorrect entry existed.

I then manually modified the /etc/fstab again with the correct entry (as in my original post):

/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 /datastore ext3 defaults 1 1

Rebooted, but still had the problems. I couldn't figure out how to manually re-run the POSTINSTALL SCRIPTLET for the kernels, so I just removed them with yum, and re-installed only the latest kernel, which in turn re-runs the postinstall script and on reboot, everything is OK.


However, can someone point me to a good article on re-running the postinstall scriptlet. One that has some good examples and such... Thanks.

SOLVED.
