Kernel Panic. Cannot mount root fs on block (1,0)

Post by sox2000 » Wed Aug 06, 2008 8:45 am

I downloaded version ram-0.21.0-56

After unpacking and booting I get a kernel panic - Cannot mount root fs on block (1,0)

I've checked the md5 hashes of rootfs and kernel files and they checkout fine.

Can anyone point me to what the cause is likely to be?

Very often, this is caused by not enough memory being allocated by the kernel to the ram disk. Be sure that the ramdisk_size parameter on you kernel boot line is set to a value as least as large as the root file system. I use ramdisk_size=96000.

I'll try that when I get home. I have it set to 64000 iirc.
