I updated to Kernel26-2.6.29-3 and when I try to boot, I get the following error messages:
ERROR: Failed to parse block device for UUID=75d4f90b-74ba-4d2e-ade1-bd1346c399ab ERROR: Unable to create/detect root device UUID=e9d296aa-d9b2-4b68-a75d-f936aceb2b87
Here's my /etc/fstab:

I have used the Arch Live CD to reinstall Kernel26-2.6.28-3 and everything is fine again. I like to stay updated. How can I fix this problem with the new kernel?

What about changing the "UUID=e9d296aa-d9b2-4b68-a75d-f936aceb2b87" to actual points (e.g. /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2)?
I just finished trying that. Kernel26-2.6.29 failed with the same error and Kernel26-2.6.28 still boots fine.
Uhm this is a package from testing. use the testing subforum.

Fixed it! I'm not sure why this is the first Kernel upgrade I've had to do this, but I had to remove "raid-partitions" from the "HOOKS" line of my mkinit*.conf. I guess it's because I don't have any raid-partitions and that caused the image generation process to fail.
