I've just taken 2 old servers running CentOS 3.x, wiped it out, and
installed CentOS 4.1
The systems seemed to work fine with CentOS 4.1, but when I proceeded
to run yum -y update, all the RPM's (101) download and seem to install
fine - however, upon reboot, partitions such as /usr/ and /var will
not mount (ext3). These machines both use the Intel S875WP1 P4
Mainboards. Both use SATA Drives. One uses the promise controller
(which on install seems to find a suitable driver).
Anyway, I've also tried installing directly from the CentOS 4.2 Server
CD, same issue. Install goes fine, but bootup won't mount /var
Any idea what this is all about?
