Hi,

    I'm having a problem as of late with our XFS test box (and I haven't
 had the time to take a look at it until today).  The kernel boots,
 mounts the root partition (XFS) and tries to open the initial console
 and fails.  If I pass the rw parameter to the kernel, it's able to get
 an initial console, eventually the root filesystem gets remounted ro
 and the boot fails (this is probably a problem in the SuSE boot
 scripts).  This started happening arround the time 2.4.0 was checked
 in.  At the moment I'm working my way thru this:

    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20001228.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20001229.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20001230.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20001231.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20010101.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS-test13-pre3+athlon.20010102.tar.gz

    kernel-2.4.0-XFS+athlon.20010114.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS+athlon.20010115.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS+athlon.20010116.tar.gz
    kernel-2.4.0-XFS+athlon.20010118.tar.gz

 (the missing builds are due to problems in the box that actually builds
 the kernels) 

 Has anyone else seen this?

 TIA,
