Need help Booting 2.6.8!
I know someone must be running this version, but I can't get it to boot.
I have installed vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-s390 and initrd.img-2.6.8-2-s390
right from debian/testing. I think it is a problem with my
kernel parameters but I can't find the right combination.
The best results that I ever get end up like this:
devfs_mk_dev: could not append to parent for <NULL>0
NET: Registered protocol family 2
IP: routing cache hash table of 512 buckets, 4Kbytes
TCP: Hash tables configured (established 1024 bind 2048)
NET: Registered protocol family 1
NET: Registered protocol family 10
IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
NET: Registered protocol family 17

Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
15:36:55 00: HCPGSP2629I The virtual machine is placed in CP mode due to a
SIGP stop from CPU 01.
I get these messages right after I boot:
