Slack 10.1 + VMWare problem
I installed Slackware 10.1 in VMWare. Using Grub I was able to boot successfully
my menu.lst file :
My fstab file :
time out 10
title Slack 10.1
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro
title 2.4.29 Kernel ide-2.4.29
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-ide-2.4.29 root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11 root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro
title 2.6.10 Kernel
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.10 root=/dev/sda1 ro
color light-green/brown blink-red/blue
I installed the 2.6.10 kernel in the /testing folder and when I rebboted I was unable to boot using the 2.4.29 or the 2.6.10 kernel.
/dev/sda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
I compiled the 2.6.11 kernel were I built in support for reiserfs and I was still unsuccessful. I got the following error: "Kenel Panic: cannot open root device sda1 or unknown block device".
It seems like the kernel cannot access the disk. I want to build in support for SCSI but I am unsure which option to do this.
The only way I can boot is using the Slack disk 1 cd,using the scsi.s boot image. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
