I am having a problem when booting using a custom kernel.
Here are the settings I am using..
Syslinux as bootloader
I am using linux-image-22.214.171.124 and have applied the unionfs
patch(linux-126.96.36.199-u3.dff) and the squashfs3.2-patch (for linux-2.6.18).
I have placed the live-initramfs_1.91.5~2464_i386.deb package in
chroot_local-packages along with my kernel package. (taken from
debian-snapshots on live.debian.net)
I get as far at trying to load the root filesystem.
Begin: Mounting root filesystem
End_request: I/O error, dev fd0 sector 0
Unionfs: new lower inode mtime (bindex=1, name=etc)
Sits here for 10-15 seconds and I can see it accessing the cd rom drive.
Then I get
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer deference at virtual address
Oops: 0000 #1
And a lot of other stuff. If you need the other stuff I can write it all
down and email it as well.
I have been trying to make this work for over a week, trying so may
I really hope you can help.
Thanks in advance.
