Fedora 9 (Sulphur)

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:


Then write:

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.
