try reinstalling the kernel rpm, but this time do setenforce 0 first.
If that works, it's a mkinitrd vs selinux-policy bug.

Someone mentioned something similar in #fedora-devel yesterday, which is why I'm
thinking this could be the reason.

Comment 2 herman 2007-04-14 16:17:56 UTC
I can't find that rpm, I'm very sorry. I'll check it out if you can give me a
mirror. It's not in 'my' repos anymore. Is it still relevant?
Running *.3062 now.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2007-04-23 16:03:56 UTC
3062 (and later) works ? If so, this can be closed.

Comment 4 herman 2007-04-23 20:18:53 UTC
All of the later kernels work.

Comment 5 herman 2007-04-23 20:20:15 UTC
3062 and later kernels work.
