Subject: Why can't I build a running Kernel?
Date: Thu, 08 Feb 2007 11:17:47 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Why can't I build a running Kernel?
I have in the past, but since some time in the 2.6.19 series,
I have got the following series of errors. 
Same thing now with 2.6.20.

I build with:

    make xconfig

changing only the Processor type to Pentium4,
then I

    make bzImage
    make modules
    make modules_install
    make install

Fine everything builds, no errors.
I then try booting, and I get 4 or 5 lines and then

    Unable to access resume device (/dev/sda5)
    mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
    < 4 more lines with setuproot and switchroot >
and then

    Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init!

What has changed, what do I need to do to get this thing to boot?
