    Unhappy I am new to this whole linux deal!


    Hello
    I was wondering if I could have some help regarding a slackware 10.2 error post-install.

    I keep getting an error message saying:

    Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs 16:02

    If anyone could help me to get further that would be great. Thanks

    I hope this doesnt sound disrespectful but for a new user slackware is a PTA. You should try one of the more user friendly distros but dont let that deter you from using slackware either because it was my first distro. i am just giving you an option for the purpose of your own experience. wouldnt want to you to give up so soon based on a bad experience getting linux installed and running.

    As far as your problem did you just install straight from the disk and use one of the default kernels?
    I found some stuff on www.google.com/linux that relate to your problem when you search for
    Code:
    Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs 16:02

    PS you might also tell us what kind of drive controller your hard drive is on.

    yeah i would get suse 10.1, if ur new slackware is harsh, if you are just gonna use slackware then even try slax, its the same and its very nice with a 2.6 kernel
