After running pacman -Syu and a reboot, I'm getting this result on boot:
:: Starting udevd... done. :: Running Hook [udev] :: Triggering uevents...done. Waiting to seconds for device /dev/disk/by-uuid/3b8ec1f8-9b6b-4f38-b671-d708a0b21344 ... ERROR: Unable to find root device '/dev/disk/by-uuid/3b8ec1f8-9b6b-4f38-b671-d708a0b21344'. You are being dropped to a recovery shell Type 'exit' to try and continue booting sh: can't access tty: job control turned off
I'm running Arch on VMWare.
As an aside -- I don't know if this could affect the situation -- but I ran Truecrypt as root and tried to mount an encrypted volume just before rebooting. I got this error:
This prompted the reboot. But again, this was all after a system upgrade.
Try booting without uuid for once, maybe it got changed for some reason.
I downgraded to an earlier kernel and was able to boot.
I then upgraded to 3.2.2 and was also able to boot.
I *think* this may have initially been caused by something truecrypt did when it tried mounting a volume.
Using gpg now
