Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to ker
i was trying to recompile my kernel with NTFS suport. i tried the following
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmLinuz-2.4.9
/sbin/mkinitrd initrd-2.4.9.img 2.4.9
added entry of the new kernel to grub.conf and rebooted.
now i am getting the following errors;
mounting /proc filesystem
creating block devices
mounting root filesystem
mount : erro 19 mounting exts
pivotroot : pivot_root (/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed:2
umount /initrd/proc failed :2
freeing unused kernel memory : 128k freed
Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
can anyone help me. i am in deep trouble. :shock:
init paramater crashed my mandriva bootup - used rhbg instead
This might be slightly off topic. But when I tried to add a init parameter to my grub file mandriva linux wouldn't load - crashed on boot with a kernel panic really didn't like that init parameter.
I originally wanted to control run levels via grub menus.
I then found I could do this -
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 resume=/dev/hda5 splash=silent vga=788 rhgb quiet X
X being the run level. Now I can boot up on either run level 3 or 5 with two meu entries.
I don't understand how this fixed it but it did. Now I have to work backwards and understand how rhgb overrides my /etc/inittab file. And what the heck quiet means.
