2.6.2-rc1-ben1 and XFS anyone?



Hi people,

I was wondering if any of you managed to boot a self-compiled
2.6.2-rc1-ben1 with XFS support and, obviously, an XFS system (say the /
partition).

I rsynced against rsync.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de,
where I got linuxppc-2.5-benh and compiled, removing EXT2 and EXT3
support and leaving XFS support on (in kernel, not modules).

When rebooting, it complains as follows:

VFS: Cannot open root devide "hda4" or hda4
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on hda4
  <0>Rebooting in 180 seconds..

My system is properly installed from Ethan BensonŽs iso, and upgraded to
unstable. The xfs-kernel that came with the installation works, and I
just canŽt understand why the 2.6 refuses to boot.

I have tried activating EXT2 and EXT3 support, IRIX partition support,
in vain (just in case there was some magic relationship there that could
fix it).

I kindly appreciate any help here, since I am reinstalling my laptop and
want to go straight into 2.6.

Thanks in advanced,
