Re: Use of labels in grub.conf



I ran into the same issue when recompiling 2.6.5-1.349 earlier today. I deleted root=LABEL=/ rhgb altogether. I found the fix somewhere on google, not at home so I can't say where, but it was a support forum for a different distro, the issue there was with a 2.6.5 kernel update as well.
