I seem to be hitting the "no root device found, boot has failed, 
sleeping forever" problem.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 Beta Announcement

Red Hat is pleased to announce the availability of the
*beta* release of 5.5 (kernel-2.6.18-186.el5) for the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 family of products including:

  - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Advanced Platform for x86,
    AMD64/Intel(r) 64, Itanium Processor Family, Power
    Systems
  - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server for x86,
    AMD64/Intel(r) 64, Itanium Processor Family, Power
    Systems and System z
  - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop for x86 and
    AMD64/Intel(r)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 is in development and therefore the
contents of the beta media kit, the implemented features, and the
supported configurations are subject to change before the release
of the final product.  The supplied beta packages and CD and DVD
images are intended for testing purposes only.  Remember that
this early access software is not supported and is not intended
for production environments.  Benchmark and performance results
cannot be published based on this beta release without explicit
approval from Red Hat.

While anaconda's "upgrade" option will perform an upgrade from
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 or 5.4 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5.5 beta, there is no guarantee that the upgrade will preserve
all of a system's settings, services, and custom configurations.
For this reason, Red Hat recommends that you perform a fresh
installation rather than an upgrade.  Upgrading from beta
release to the GA product is not supported.

less package

Hello folks,

     I'm wondering why I did not get ack for less package. It does not 
work at all in rhel. Last patch brought regression.

cman upgrade


Hi,

I have a two nodes cluster using rhel 5.2
what are the risks to upgrade to 5.4 while the cluster is up?
should I close the cluster or can the cluster work while one node is still
in 5.2 and the other is 5.4?
