    Unhappy Help Needed in Booting to Fedora Core 5


    I am a new bie to Linux, recently I installed Fedora Core 5 on my system.

    My System Configuration is as follows.

    Processor - PIV 2.8 Ghz
    RAM - 1.5 GB
    Hard Disk - 200 GB.

    Fedora Core installed successfully, but when i try to boot to Fedora Core, it is throwing the following error.

    Booting 'Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp)'
    root (hd0, 7)

    File System type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

    Kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15_1.2054_FC5Smp ro root =/dev/volGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet

    [Linux - bzimage, setup =0x1e00, Size = 0x170ac]

    uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

    Kernel panic - not syncing. VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)


    I tried everything Please help me resolving this issue.
    Previously I successfully installed Ubuntu on my system. It worked fine.
    I don't know why I am getting this error for Fedora Core.

    i have seen kernel.x.x.smp crashing many times on my Proliant server.. try the non-smp version(not the boot kernel or sada khushbo ) if you are using standard fedora5 cds its in cd1/Fedora/RPMS/kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.i686.rpm

    make sure Grub.conf has entries in order to select kernel on boot...

    To see what is in your grub.conf, do this.

    less /boot/grub/grub.conf

    or

    less /boot/grub/menu.lst

    Also, do

    less /etc/fstab

    And post the results.

    Please help...

    And post the results.


    But how do I get the linux prompt, since it is not booting to linux environment

    or you mean to say using "Resuce Disk"?

    Oops, sorry about that.
    You could grab a Mepis or Knoppix livecd, boot up with it.
    Just access the partition where your FC is installed, you will see an icon on the desktop.
    And then you should be able to see what is in the folders.
    www.distrowatch.com has what you need.
