[SOLVED] Kernel Panic - systemd - sysvinit - initscripts

Hi, I'm a proud Arch Linux user for many years. But now I have made a mistake while upgrading to systemd.

First I installed systemd, then removed initscripts and sysvinit manually, after installed systemd-sysvcompat.

My excuse by not following the installation guide directly as suggested at systemd wiki
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sy … stallation

Now I'm stuck with a Kernel Panic!

Can anybody help me please how to fix this? Thanks anyway.

First, you need a install media, such like Arch install media.
then, do some type like:
# mount /dev/sdxY /mnt      #mount your root partition, x Y is your partition lebal
# mount /dev/sdxZ /mnt/boot      #If you use a separate /boot partition in your system
# arch-chroot /mnt      #Then you can fix your mistake by pacman
# cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg && pacman -U initscripts      #If you have packages cache

Thanks for the reply.

However I have already tried that. Doesn't work, I'm still stuck with a Kernel Panic. Are there any more clues or solutions?

What boot loader are you using, what is in your bootloader config?

Hi, I'm using Grub legacy, is there any unusual?

# (0) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,6)
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/* 
ro initrd /kernel26.img

Well, not what I was thinking might be wrong - but there are two oddities:

1) the initrd line should be it's own line as it is you are passing "initrd /kernel26.img" to the kernel rather than to grub.  It's quite likely that this could be the problem.
2) Still on 2.6?  If you want an LTS kernel, you should be on 3.0 (I think 3.0 ... definitely something newer than 2.6 though).

Thank you very much for your time! This solved the issue. I messed up the menu.lst after the kernel panic.

According to

cat /proc/version = Linux version 3.6.11-1-ARCH

Do you know why it boot /kernel26.img ? How can I fix this? Thanks again.
