That’s right new version of Fedora is out, this time it’s codename is Sulphur.
Yesterday I’ve downloaded it and burned it into a DVD. A couple of minutes ago I tried to install it with no success, since it kept giving me kernel panic when booting:
VFS: Cannot open root device “<NULL>” or unknown-block(253,0)
Please append a correct “root=” boot option.
Since I haven’t much time to spend on this at the moment, I decided to re-install Fedora 8. For my surprise it kept crashing on /sbin/loader while booting from DVD.
Am I lucky or what?
After reading a couple of posts at Fedora Forum I found a solution for this problem.
When booting, press:
linux acpi=off apm=off pci=noacpi
And that will solve the problem, it won’t hang up on /sbin/loader any more.
In conclusion… ain’t got Fedora 9 installed yet, but I will when I have time to spend on it.
