[SOLVED] install, pacman -Syuf, reboot: unable to find root device

last night and today i tried installing arch but i get stuck at "unable to find root device"

the process i follow is

install from cd
boot into root
download sudo and glibc
log into user account
get alsa, xorg, drivers, and window manager
start x
update to pacman 4
pacman-key --init
pacman -Syuf

then i reboot

after it reboots it says

"error: unable to find root device 'dev/disk/by-uuid/84661f5e=689c492a-aae2-6f09590fd7fb"

and it drops me into a reecovery shell

the next issue is that the recovery shell doesnt recognize my keyboard so i cant type or ctrl-alt-del i have to manually power the computer off and on then im stuck at the recovery shell unable to type anything in

heres the output of pacman -Syuf

ATTENTION UDEV:
----------
We now use upstream rules for assigning devices to the 'disk', 'optical',
'scanner' and 'video' groups. Beware of any changes.
--
We no longer create symlinks from /dev/ to /dev/0.
--
For security reasons, we no longer add devices to the 'storage' group. Use
udisks and friends, or add custom rules to /etc/udev.d/rules/, if you want
this functionality back.
--
We no longer create the static nodes on install needed for an initrd-less boot
where devtmpfs is not mounted by the kernel, this only affects fresh installs.
--
devtmpfs support is now a hard requirement. Users of the official Arch kernels
have this enabled.
--
udev-compat has been removed, and should be uninstalled.
--
Framebuffers are no longer blacklisted by default.
--
binaries moved from /sbin to /usr/bin

Re: [SOLVED] install, pacman -Syuf, reboot: unable to find root device

shit happens when you use -Syuf

with that command you just lost files. I recommand to use your livecd, chroot into your root and run pacman -Qk and reinstall all packages that have missing files.

after that, regenerate initrd image.

1) https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ch … nging_Root (don't forget to mount /boot as well if is on separate partition)
2) mkinitcpio -p linux


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

You don't need to force the update for everything just for the one package: Filesystem upgrade
Allways good to check the startpage before you update. smile

Re: [SOLVED] install, pacman -Syuf, reboot: unable to find root device

Dont feel bad.

I just pulled the same stunt on one of my older boxes, and I've been using arch for 5 years.

In a hurry as usual, all my brain picked up from the arch mainpage rss was: "It is strongly advised to avoid the --force or -f switch as it is not safe. However, in this particular case it is needed as deleting /etc/mtab manually would break pacman." Never even saw the filsystem word, and promply hosed my system.

Many thanks for the quick answer in this thread!
