Re: kernel image parameters

Hello Richard,

Since I've had no joy in getting 2.6.1 (or 2.6.0) can anyone give me the
command to boot kernel-image-2.6.0-1-generic. I have tried (arc/milo):

	boot sda1:/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.0-1-generic initrd=/initrd.img
init=/linuxrc root=/dev/rd/0

I have tried numerous variations of the above but I generally get:

Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

Your kernel can't mout its root-filesystem. It could be, that you should be using something like root=/dev/rd/c0d0p1 instead of rd=/dev/rd/0. The exact numbers depend on your system where the first 0 is the number of your controller, the second 0 is the number of the logical disk on that controller and 1 to 7 is the partitionnumber on that disk.
