Ok getting a kernel panic VFS: Cannot open root device "" or 03:01. I probably should have it as a Label or not? oot=LABEL=/ script, on the Kernel line?
I tried root=/dev/sda1 sda2 sdb1 and sdb2 and no luck. Any other idea because technically this should work right?
Here is some of the error script:
EXT2-fs error (device ramdisk(1,0)): ext2_read_inode: unable to readd inode block - inode=3937, block=16387
Attempt to access beyond end of device
01:00 rw=0, want=22033, limit=4096 and it sais that a few more times only difference is want=22034, 22035 and 22036.
VFS: Cannot open root device "LABEL=/" or 00:00 so I give up on putting LABEL there. The it sais please append a correct "root=" boot option.
Maybe I should not be formating the sdb2 partition in Fedora 7 since it used a 2.6 kernel and might be an issue with the 2.4 DSL kernel? Yes No?
Is there anything special I need in the kernel script line besides what is ther already such as root=/dev/sda2 ro toram, noreject frugal vga=791 acpi=off
Have to have acpi off or I get a kernel panic. Also I like to see the penguin on boot up vga=791.
Also I have two partitions as Wiki How to sais an win95 sdb1 and linux sdb2. Also I am using a Monster 8gb USB mini hard drive so its not relly a flash but probably is seeing as such?
I tried different root devices so it must be something to do with the ext2 fs I created from within Fedora 7 using kernel 2.6 vs the 2.4 kernel on DSL?
Well just in case I went ahead and did fdisk and formatting over again in Red hat 9 with a 2.4x kernel in case that was the issue and its not.
I tried the 3.4-initrd version on a PC that is known to boot the DSL-ISO on the USB without problems so that initrd version doesn't work at all on any PC.
Is there some addtional script on need on the kernel line to make complete the booting without getting that error above?
Anyhow hope you can help?
