Ok I was helping my friend do a stage 3 on his athlon xp, all going good till we came to dealing with Grub.
First off here is the Partition Table
And the grub.confCode:
sda1 /boot ext2
sda3 / reiserfs
And Finally the error output on boot (after selecting in grub menu)Code:
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sda2
All the data posted to the screen before these three lines appears normal in my experiance.Code:
VFS: Cannot open root device "sda2" or unknown_block (0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount roof fs on unknown_block (0,0)
We built our own kernel and i made sure that all the appropiate file systems were supported. The only thing i can figure is that it isnt accepting /dev/sda2 as root.
Any ideas or pointers would be much appeciated.
