Debian Installer hangs
Installing Debian (Debian Alpha Port) on a rawhide with a diskaray
connected to a QLogic HVD (ISP 1040)* leads to a kernel panic:
VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00
If I connect a single SCSI Drive to a Symbios Card, removing all
QLogic-Adapters, I can install Debian. With such an installation and
having connected the diskarray afterwards, I can access the array and
use the disks (unfortunately there is no space to mount a single drive
in the box nowhere, so I must use the diskarray solely). With this, I
just want to state the hardware is basically working with Debian...
What I have tried so far, with same results:
- use LordSuch's Netinst (from CD)
- use the rescue- and rootdisk (from floppy)
- preformat the disks in the array with ext3 and bsd disklabels (bsd
disklabels are needed for debian-alpha to boot)
- with unformatted and unpartitioned disks
- different scsi cabling and changing PCI slots
- using bootflag rootfstype
- googling to get other hints...
What else can I try?
What does the number 01:00 in the error-message mean? If I change the
cabling, sometimes I get 02:00 or even 08:00.
Thank you for your help!
