    Can't boot 2.6.2 kernel


    Hi !

    i compiled the 2.6.2 kernel under gentoo with genkernel, but i can't boot it!

    here's my lilo.conf

    Code:
    boot=/dev/hde
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    prompt
    timeout=50
    lba32
    vga=791
    default=2.4.22
    
    [kernel 2.4.22]
    
    image=/boot/kernel-2.6.2
    label=2.6.2
    root=/dev/ram0
    initrd=/boot=initrd-2.6.2
    append="real_root=/dev/hde5 init=/linuxrc"
    i have the same config for the other kernel, except the kernel and inird, but with the 2.6.2 kernel i get the following error:

    Code:
    Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (1,0)
    can anybody help?


    thx in advance!!

    Do you have support for the fs type that your root fs is built into the kernel?

    Looks like you left some filesystem out during kernel compilation.
    Make sure your RAM FS is in the kernel, not as module.
