How do I make computer automaticaly restart after kernel panic? Obsrv 22:53, 30 September 2008 (EDT) --byte 20:28, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

Login Wrong

If one uses arch to login, the response to the mount command is "mount: only root can do that". You might want to try root instead. - KitchM 00:14, 22 October 2009 (EDT)

Kernel ID

Need to explain how to identify the last kernel used. - KitchM 00:38, 22 October 2009 (EDT)

"Recovery Console" evolved

It would be nice to add that as a sort of countermeasure there is the possibility of add init=/bin/sh to the grub's kernel line in order to quickly access the battlefield and solve some things without a rescue cd.

chroot instructions

I'm having some troubles with a possible kernel panic. I found this page disagrees with the actual Chroot page. So while I procrastinate on my own problem and attempt to take a breather before all my hair falls out, I thought I would make this suggestion. Either one of these pages should be updated to agree with each other. The Chroot article has a newer edit date so I tend to think it should be the standard.

Chroot article reads
mount -t proc proc proc/
mount -t sysfs sys sys/
mount -o bind /dev dev/
Kernel Panics article reads
# mount -t proc none /mnt/proc
# mount -t sysfs none /mnt/sys
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev"

Perhaps the end result is equal or insignificant but it is a bit confusing for someone who has to read these articles, e.g. me.
