Using Fedora 16 I just now updated my software updates again on 12/16/11 and most of the updates were the abrt bug report and logger packages that required restart. After restart it reads:


/init:139: rm:not found

/init:143: udevadm:not found

[:152:-gt: unexpected operator

/init:152: mkdir:not found

[1.941550]dracut: FATAL:No or empty root = argument

Now my caplock tab keeps flashing and the _ keeps blinking on the screen. What to do?

Try boot an older kernel. From there we can take a look and try to determine if it is a problem with dracut or your grub entry.
