"Alert! /dev/sda1 does not exist" when booting a new kernel
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2008
Please help! I'm new to kernel configuration and at my wit's end.
I compiled a new 2.6.22 kernel (without any patches) using make-kpkg, according to the instructions at http://technowizah.com/2005/12/debia...l-compile.html.
Installing the package worked without errors, but when I try to boot into the kernel, I get:
Alert! /dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
Check your root = boot argument.
Check for missing modules or device files
my /proc/cmdline file says
There are no sda devices listed in /dev.
When I boot into my original (2.6.18) kernel, it says that the filesystem is mounted on /dev/sda1, and /dev has 5 different sda listings (sda, sda1, sda5, sda6, sda2)
I tried editing my /boot/grub/menu.lst and changing the 2.6.22 entry to use sda1's /dev/disk/by-uuid uuid instead. Didn't work. At the point where the 2.6.22 kernel fails, /dev/disk doesn't have a by-uuid directory at all. (Its /dev/disk/by-id directory has only one entry

I have been searching and searching and searching and haven't been successful in finding the solution to this problem of trying to get ipmitool to work which is dependent on /dev/ipmi0 to exist which it doesn't unfortunately. Here's some information that I think would be helpful:

After compiling my new kernel (i tried both 2.4.4 and 3.5-rc) and I try to boot my kernel I got the error in the subject:

Right, I would love to change the boot order on my laptop. Mainly because it is shared, and I am the only one who uses Ubuntu (version 9.10)... So everyone keeps moaning for me to change it!
Following all the sound advice from this forum it looks easy... Except /boot/grub/menu.lst does not exist! Huh?
If anyone can tell me why this is happening, that would be great!
[SOLVED] Debian Wheezy Synaptic does not start from the menu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 18, 2014
I have a Debian Wheezy Xfce which was upgraded from Squeeze.
After upgrade, I am unable to start Synaptic from menu.
Purging and re-installing does not help.
Running gksu synaptic works fine.
The problem is in running from the menu.
GrUB: Selected Disk Does not Exist
- date: January 27, 2005
Happy I was, using my dual-boot FC3/WIndows laptop, when one dark and cloudy day GrUB decides that it hates me.
I hadn't altered grub.conf, hadn't touched device.map, hadn't really messed with anything. All of a sudden though, GrUB decided that it was just going to hang after the BIOS finished loading and print the word GRUB on the screen. That's it., 'GRUB' and a blinking cursur. I don't even get to the menu.
With a sigh, I went over to my neighbors house and downloaded Knoppix. Booted onto the live CD, chrooted, and examined my grub config. As I thought, everything was as I had left it. Here are the contents of grub.conf and device.map:
grub]# cat grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,4)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version
GRUB Error 21: Selected Disk Does Not Exist...

I have received excellent help from Tommcd on an attempt to migrate Ubuntu, existing by itself on an IDE disk,to a multiboot arrangement on a new SATA disk. That process can be viewed here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...66#post6635866
I realize that this post constitutes a cross-post in part, but the current error results from attempting to reinstall GRUB, what I thought would be the simplest step.
After reinstalling GRUB (I used the "sudo grub; find /boot/grub/stage1; root (hd0,5); setup (hd0)" routine) I rebooted after the process appeared to proceed w/o error.
Upon finding the GRUB boot list I selected 8.04 Ubuntu and was greeted by the intractable (for me) "error 21: selected disk does not exist".
I found on other forum replies that a problem seems to exist when migrating to SATA disks, or something. Anyway, I then tried installing 8.10 from the Live CD and nearly made perilous changes to the size of my main Windows pa
package javax.mail does not exist for centos 6.2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 20, 2012
I have a centos 6.2 server. I have put the mail.jar into /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_03/jre/lib/ext folder. Then when I compile my java it gives me this error. The funny part I have done this last month on another server also with centos 6.2 and same java version all works fine. What could be missing here?
