kernel update 2.6.25.4-10.fc8 breaking bootup



Hi all,

I just yum upgraded three different FC8 workstations I have here at work to the latest kernel update and all three broke in the same manner. Upon restart grub loads the kernel and initrd, then it goes through the classic errors of:

Unable to access resume device (LABEL=SWAP-sda2)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory

My guess is that the initrd has bad info from the mkinitrd during the kernel install. Anyone else seeing this? These are installs that have been working fine with FC8 for months, and have had nothing change. All that I did was install the kernel update with yum, and the old kernel still works fine. As far as I can tell grub.conf is also correct. Any ideas?
