    Problem booting with new kernel


    I just upgraded to kernel 3.11.6 from 3.10.7-r1. Once i reboot the kernel was loading fine but then it started throwing a couple errors but i couldnt really read them because it just went through so fast. It brought me to the login but it wasn't right, the hostname was unknown, the domain was unknown, and when i logged in it was acting kind of strange like just displaying the $ sign with no name or anything then id hit enter and then my username would finally pop up with the $. Also i found my /boot was not mounted and my root filesystem was read only until i remounted it manually. Is there anyway i can get those errors from a log file so i can post them on here? Or does anyone have an idea on whats wrong?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Rule 1 - when installing a new kernel, first make a full bit copy of the system drive.
    Rule 2 - see Rule 1

    Violating either of these rules in the past has required that I boot from a Live DVD, copy my data to a backup drive, and reinstall the OS and all required applications from scratch! Gah! Not fun...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
