I just repartitioned my master drive, with my slave drive set up as /home... And I cannot get Arch to boot properly. The install went perfectly fine, other than a few bizarre "cannot find /sbin/chroot" messages which did not seem to affect the installation of software. But now, when I boot via GRUB, the kernel loads, and then the boot stops with the message, "Error: cannot start initial console" and my machine reboots! :shock:
Yes, BASH is installed. Yes, I am using uDev. No, I have not done any weird editing of config files.
What the hell is going on?
How did you repartitioned your master drive? Did you do anything to your /dev directory ?
Do you have this line in your /etc/fstab ?
none /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0
Do you have /home mounted in fstab too ? ;-)
BTW If you've migrated from devfs to udev you also need to run migrate-udev.
Anyway, one solution for your problem is also described here:
Last time I installed Arch, you see, the installer must have done this stuff automatically, because I used uDev from the beginning with none of this crap.
Hmm... The installer does do it by default - or rather, pacman does it when installing uDev. Why it didn't happen that time is anyone's guess, though my bet's on a bad install floppy.
