    Kernel Panic


    I am running Mandrake 10.0, kernel 2.6.3-9mdk. I tried to add a driver to the kernel, then I tried to compile 2.6.7. I did make, make install, and make modules install. I had a bunch of errors, so I just said forget it.

    Well I guess when I did all that, it screwed up my boot process. I am using lilo, and I ran a rescue disk and checked it against my laptop mandrake 10 ./boot files, and it looks like all the simlinks are still pointing to the old 2.6.3-9mdk, and not 2.6.7.

    The problem with the boot is its not finding the root partition, /dev/hda. The lilo loader is pointing to the root dir as /dev/ram3 (?) I don't understand that one. I tried changing it on the rescue disk, but after I altered it, I was unable to run lilo to reset the config file. So I selected one of the other lilo kernel images, one pointing to /dev/hda2, the correct partition, and still same result of kernel panic.

    Here are all the errors I get.

    Loading jbd.ko module
    jbd: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module
    Error inserting '/lib/jbd.ko': -1 Invalid module format
    ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!
    Loading ext3.ko module
    ext3: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module
    Error inserting '/lib/ext3.ko': -1 Invalid module format
    ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!

    well, retrying without the option flags
    mount: error 19 mounting ext3
    well, retrying read-only without any flag
    mount: error 19 mounting ext3

    Remounting devfs at correct place if necessary
    Mounted devfs on /dev
    Freeing unused kernel memory: 260k freed
    Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.


    What did I do to change the place lilo is looking for the root partition, and how can I change it back?

    Thanks,

    phil

    Did you run lilo after you changed the lilo.conf file?

    Lilo gave me some sort of shared libraries error. The only thing I can think of is my rescue disk was redhat, and read-only. It would not run lilo.
