One of he updates that I got one day after EOL was a kernel update so it's not a third party repository.

And as Murphy would have it, this kernel doesn't boot:
...
Booting the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 6.0.19 starting
Unable to access resume device (UUID=blah blah blah...)
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.

The 2.6.26.5-28.fc8 boot just fine. The normal procedure would be to file a bug but in this case that's not possible since all F8 bugs have been dropped.

So why don't I just upgrade to F9? Well, I'd like to but as I've previously reported on this list, something modified my /etc/fstab, inserted a bunch of UUIDs and removed the mount point for windows drive (dual boot) and so broke BackupPC. I'm about to start another thread on trying to figure this out and I don't want to upgrrade until I have a good backup.
