Re: need major help- RESCUE and ROOT disks
how is everybody doing. I shall now explain my situation in a better
way. I need to make some rescue disks with my kernel with its root disk
(so when i use them i get some mini distro in ram ). Once I reach that
staage. I want to be able to mount my reisefs partitions / ext2
partitions etc. I need to do this because then i can do clear mounting
, formatting, download system backups from local intranet ftp server etc.
I have tried everything. I read the bootdisk howto (followed that), i
even did copying kernel to normal debian disks. The problem is i get the
kernel working but when it asksfor root disk ... things dont work. It
says kernelpanic etc.
I use kernel 2.4.0test2-ac2 with reiserfs patch. . I have ramdisk option
with rams size to 8192KB from default 4096KB and initrd option also
enabled. Now I don't know are my rescue disks bad or root disks bad ...so
its very frustrating.
I would really appreciate if someone told me on how to do this exactly
(step by step) from making a rescue disk and a rootfs disk
I even tried YARD no luck with that.
I have spent more than 2 weeks on this...I am not getting any luck.
My kernel is 733KB (recommend one) I think I can scale it down little bit
more if needed.
