Tried my tree with a pmac_defconfig ? (then eventually turning on SMP)
rsync from source.mvista.com::linuxppc-2.5-benh
The Complie went very well and compiled it without smp frist to make sure it runs. When I do I get this:
Started krxtimod 15
Started krxiod 16
Started krxsecd 17
VFS: Cannot open root device "hde9" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kerel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
<0>Rebooting in 180 seconds...
This has been my bane with the 2.6.0-test kernels on the xserv ever since the beginning. The correct partition I have been using with my 2.4.22 kernel is hda9. But every time I try to boot into 2.6.0-test(x) I get this error every time, rather puzzeling. I have also with yaboot made the hda9 -> hdg9 inclusive and still no booting. I know one gets this when it does not have a boot partitioon but for some reason it will not reconize any letter I give it for booting into. Thanks for the help.
