Compiling kernel 2.6.6 in RH-9
I am currently running Red Had 9 (Shrike) with kernel 220.127.116.11. I downloaded and then tried to compile the 2.6.6 kernel. I compiled them using the following steps,
1. Extract the kernel contents
2. open terminal and then change directory to the kernel source directory
3. make menuconfig
4. make bzImage
5. make modules
6. make modules_install
7. make install
after I installed the kernel, I rebooted the system. I am using the GRUB loader. The new kernel entry appeared in the loader properly, but I get the message during the booting process of the new kernel. It states the following.
VFS: cannot open root device "LABEL=/" or unknown-block (0,0)
please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (0,0)
<7> uhci-hcd 0000:00:1d.0 suspend_hc
what does this mean? suggest me a solution.
