Trouble with pxebooting 0.21.0-45

Post by johnpullan » Wed Apr 02, 2008 2:05 pm

I'm getting kernel panics just after booting with:

Code: Select all

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)
Has anyone else seen this or failing that have you got a solution for me to try ?

Regards

This can happen for many reasons. More information is needed.

What was the last version that booted correctly?

What are the contents of you pxelinux configuration file?

I'm afraid I don't know. I'd foolishly deleted all my old minimyths.

Code: Select all

DEFAULT minimyth-ram

LABEL minimyth-ram
        KERNEL ram-minimyth-0.21.0-45/kernel
        APPEND ro root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk=96000 initrd=ram-minimyth-0.21.0-45/rootfs
Thx

Just found an old backup - ram-minimyth-0.20-25, (there was one in between though)

ramdisk needs to be changed to ramdisk_size because the kernel obsoleted the ramdisk option in favor of the ramdisk_size option.
