    kernel panic


    Hi everybody,

    I am using RedHat 9.0

    I gave the following command.
    ]#fuser -k /

    And I restarted the system.
    Now I am gettingh the kernel panic.
    This is the output.

    Pivotroot : pivot_root(/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed : 2
    umount /initrd/proc failed : 2
    freeing unused kernel memory : 112k freed.
    kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init option to kernel.


    Please help me to recover my system.

    Thanks Inadvance,
    Mummaneni.

    Why, in the name of God, did you do that????

    Killing all processes accessing filesystem root???

    Surely, your filesystem is corrupt (rather corrupt).

    If you can try with init and initrd parameters to be passed to the kernel. I'm not sure about this... if you can't do anything more, run a knoppix (or similar) live distro and try to save your data.

    Best regards

    Hi fernape,

    Thanks for ur reply.

    It is not booting even I pass the kernel and initrd at grub.

    This is also not working
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz.ver root=/dev/hda2 init=/bin/bash

    The /sbin/init is there in the system.

    can I try for reinstalling the init rpm(SysVinit) from rescue mode.
    OR
    Right now I am using RedHat 9.0; If I upgrade this to FC, this problem will be solved or not.

    Please advice me.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Mummaneni.

    Of course upgrading will always solve the problem. If you wanna keep the existing distro, boot your box using a live-cd (use knoppix or gentoo but not ubuntu (or any other debian)). Then chroot to the RedHat's root directory and chown it as root. Then recompile the kernel (type makemenuconfig in /usr/src/<linux-kernel-in-use> and make the corresponding changes in grub/lilo. I am sure you know how to do this. In case of doubt please ask.
