unable to mount root fs...;(
I was looking now for a few hours to solve this problem, but I never found a hint that really could help.. hope here is somebody who knows what to do...
I have installed Fedora Core 3 and wanted to build my own kernel. Configuring and building was not really a problem, I did it very slowly and added every driver or module I needed directly into it, so i need no initrd. The hard drives get detected correctly, also the partitions are listed correctly, but then occures the following message:
VFS: Cannot open root device "VolGroup00/LogVol00" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot-option
Kernel panic - not sysncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
ext2 and ext3 and also reiserfs are supported by the kernel. (I left all options depending the filesystems the same as in the working standard-redhat kernel, but replaced "module" by "yes".;).) I start it with the same parameters the standard-kernel from redhat has. When I replace the "VolGroup00/LogVol00" with the partition it should boot from (hdb2), the problem is the same (Cannot open root device "/dev/hdb2").
Can anyone help??;(
