Re: f10livecd installs but wont boot, Error 2



 
> mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3:  no such file or directory

another piece of info:
it wasnt really clear what the system found missing
 was it /dev/root  or  /sysroot?

with the f10liveinstall mounted on /f10liv as seen in my fc5:

[root bootp dev]# pwd
/f10liv/dev
[root bootp dev]# ls
fd    fuse  ptmx  random  stdin   tty      zero
full  null  pts   stderr  stdout  urandom
[root bootp dev]#

not much in here, most particularly  no dev

/sysroot exists inside the initrd

and there is another /dev in there as well
but it also has no file root
[root bootp dev]# pwd
/f10liv/root/clean/dev
[root bootp dev]#
[root bootp dev]# ls
console  ptmx  ram1    tty0   tty11  tty3  tty6  tty9   ttyS2
mapper   ram   systty  tty1   tty12  tty4  tty7  ttyS0  ttyS3
null     ram0  tty     tty10  tty2   tty5  tty8  ttyS1  zero

so the f10liveinstall seems deficient, no /dev/root
unless there is yet another dev buried somewhere

any comments? 
where else to look for /dev/root?
