I dont have a seperate boot fs its on the same as root.
My quik.conf is now:
image = /boot/vmlinux
label = test
but still gives the kernel panic. VFS: unable to mount root fs on ram0
I added the ramdisk_size string because without I got: RAMDISK driver
initialized 16 RAM disks of 0(NULL)K size 1024 blocksize
With the string I got 8192K so may be this is a bug in the
If i remeber correct when I use the debian-installer kernel and the
initrd.gz I got a message: compressed ramdisk image found or so and then
debian-installer started. But not with this kernel-image. So I dont know
whats different betwen these two kernels. But I think it could be that the
kernel doesnt find the initrd.img. Could this be the reason?
So I am still trying to understand what goes wrong, debian-installer now
takes the new 2.6 kernel as standard so I think it must support oldworld
and that it is possible to use quik and 2.6 kernel or not?
Anyone out there with an oldworld had luck with the
kernel-image-2.6.7-powerpc froms sarge?
