    Question Kernel error


    Here follows an attempt to explain my situation:

    (Not sure if relevant)I tought it would be fun to have awesome as a windows manager so i downloaded (pacman) it and started it ($ awesome). I did this while Gnome was running and it stopped and the screen became all black (except for the _ in the upperleft). When I restarted my computer (kept blinking for hours had to cut of the power). My pc gave these errors:

    (sorry for the extreme bad quality.)
    Anyway. So I reinstalled arch from a usb and got the exact same errors! I had arch for nearly a month (still have to get the have-arch-install-a-month-award) and never experienced this.

    Could you give me some ideas what this is, why it is there or even some good google keywords?

    greatings,

    Hello and Welcome.
    Are you certain that you didn't make other changes to your system that caused this problem? Usually installing software in Linux does not mess with the kernel. And I do think you might have a kernel problem. Did you build this kernel yourself or is it a default kernel?

    Thanks for your fast reaction, but no i did not do anything else besides installing awesome. This is the default arch kernel.

    hmm.
    I guess you could browse the bug list at awesome and see if they have already reported this.

    Try looking here and see if you did something wrong?

    sdX is usually just an example. It's probably either /dev/sda or /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 and so on. If you have more than one disk it may be /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2. etc.
    Do you have a LiveCD you can boot the machine with? Maybe the arch CD? I don't know if that's bootable.

    Silly proud of this but about a half hour before you )osted this, i figured out that i can mount my root via the installationUSB, what i meant with sdX was that i couldnt find anything starting with sd.
