14:25 <maks> cat /proc/modules
14:25 <maks> also check if your root is there in /dev
14:25 <maks> next check is cat /proc/cmdline
14:27 <svenl> root is there in /dev. (/dev/sda2).
14:28 <svenl> /proc/modules contains the input modules. the list is : atkbd, 
              libps2, i8042, serio, sd_mod, tulip, generic sym53c8xx 
              scsi_transport_spi scsi_mod.
14:28 <svenl> cmdline has only console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0.
14:29 <maks> oh no root param
14:36 <maks> you can modify your own init
14:36 <maks> and set there ROOT
14:36 <svenl> inside the failed to boot thingy ? 
14:37 <svenl> maks: sed -i -e 's%export ROOT=%export ROOT=/dev/sda2%' /init ? 
14:43 <svenl> maks: worked.
