Install guide outdated about Old World disk booting ?
I recently tried to install Sarge on my Performa 6400, and I followed
the instructions given in the latest install guide. But on section
4.5.1, here :
they ask to use a Kernel and RamDisk from the Woody release. And
indeed, when the install is complete, Debian 3.0 is installed, andthe
Kernel is 2.2.
So I tried to get the files myself from the Sarge distfiles located
I used the vmlinux kernel, and initrd.gz ramdisk. Everything went
right during the install.
But when I rebooted into the newly installed system, a kernel panic
occured saying that it couldn't load the root partition. I double
checked the names of partitions and the partionning stage, and it
should be ok.
Does anyone know if the guide will be updated, and/or how to solve my
boot problem ?
Thanks a lot,
