2014-11-12 18:06:32 -0500 commented answer how do i regenerate my initramfs?

after this

[2.535533]dracut-initque(290):In:failed to create symbolic link "dev/resume": File exists

[186.299148]dracut-initque(290):Warning: Could not boot

[186.312502]dracut-initque(290):Warning:/dev/ubuntu-vg/swap_1 does not exist

it says it's going to emergency boot then it says

Type "journalctl" to view system logs you might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot after mounting and attach to a bug report.

then it says drakut#

if i type exit it boots up after a bit of fuss

I want to tell it to ignore the swap for ubuntu-vg but as I'll have a new hdd in about a week, I may as well wait and do a fresh install onto that if I can't fix this. I'm not too bad with commands if I understand what I'm doing but haven't used ... (more)

I'm still a little confused over how to stop it looking for the ubuntu swap file. Should I copy and paste what you wrote? not sure about if that's what I have to do nano /etc/fstab do editing (the hash is a command isn't it?) grep swap /etc/fstab /dev/mapper/fedora-swap swap swap defaults

I hav found /dev/fedora and it contains home root swap

Is this the swap file that i need to get rid of?

I only have one hdd in with just fedora on it now

If so is it rm /swap in that folder in terminal

I tried the lv scan and got an error:

[root@localhost fedora]# cd /home [root@localhost home]# vgscan -ay vgscan: invalid option -- 'a' Found swap in terminal /dev/mapper/fedora-swap: UUID="d05301ce-2af3-4042-b219-eec8cb0ddd1e" TYPE="swap"

The one that it's looking for but doesn't exist is for ubuntu-vg so I need a way to stop it from looking for it. I'll try the initramfs again

If I use --force in addition to --regenerate-all is there a particular order i need to use? I tried dracut --regenerate-all it was the same then dracut --regenerate-all --force and it was the same

How do i fix the swap partition that doesn't exist? Apologies for my noobiness

2014-11-12 09:14:28 -0500 commented question how do i regenerate my initramfs?

It's same after that command

2014-11-12 09:05:58 -0500 commented question how do i regenerate my initramfs?

I'm going to run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg in terminal

2014-11-12 08:29:01 -0500 asked a question how do i regenerate my initramfs?

I recently downloaded and installed the iso for fedora 20.01 on a spare but small hdd and have run the updates and all was fine until I successfully retreived my data from a failed hard drive that had had ubuntu 14.04 on it. I have another (3rd) hard drive with fedora 14 which boots up fine.

I have removed all hdd's except this one with the new iso

When I boot this disk with the latest and updated fedora on it hangs and drops to a shell and I get this message:

Type "journalctl" to view system logs you might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot after mounting and attach to a bug report.

found device /dev/mapper/fedora-root

[186.312502]dracut-initque(290):Warning:/dev/ununtu-vg/swap_1 does not exist

Then it tells me to regenerate my initramfs

I'm self taught and learnt all my IT stuff by trial and error and I built this desktop-machine from some new/ some old bits but still there is loads and loads I don't know so please help me The BIOS is the latest as far as I can see, I'm on a M5A78L-M. I can't flash the BIOS because I don't have Windows. (I have a USB drive on it's way in the post) but the other disk with the old version of Fedora boots/works fine, unfortunately that old disk is full. I now have things on this disk from the failed ubuntu that I can't afford to lose until my replacement HDD arrives from the ppl who sold me a dud

FransiscoD I have seen your message on the other question I asked when I thought it was solved but have no idea if or how to start messing with grub2. I realise the boot is looking for the old disk. The other disk with earlier fedora on doesn't do that.

Thank you, before I saw your answer, I typed in yum update and it was pretty awesome :)

Sorted, watched a youtube video and have done an update and seems to have fixed everything possible

(I'd like to add that Fedora was the only one of quite a lot of linux distro's that would allow me to access and retreive my stuff from a failed hdd.)

I just installed Fedora 20.01 but now it says to update the intr... something when it's booting and is going into a shell. How do i update the kernel?. I think I may have upset it while retreiving data from a failed hdd. It was fine before and I can boot ok with a spare drive that has fedora 14 on it. It does eventually boot. New to Fedora 20.01 and been using Ubuntu too long

Is there a command to use with yum to repair the boot?
