Re: Cannot boot 2.6.8 kernel from ext3 root partition on Ultra5

I have an Ultra5 that I've been running Sarge (testing - official snapshot 11/07/04, kernel 2.4.27). I downloaded and installed kernel-image-2.6.8-1-sparc64_2.6.8-5_sparc.deb, and also the corresponding source deb. I compiled my own custom 2.6.8 kernel and installed it. Both of the 2.6.8 kernels panic during boot-up. The following is the last 6 lines on the screen from an attempted boot:

NET: Registered protocol family 1
NET: Registered protocol family 17
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda2" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
 <0>Press L1-A to return to the boot prom

Could you paste the log _up to_ the "VFS: Cannot open..." message?

You use an Ultra 5, so your initrd should be loading the 'cmd64x' module for the stock kernel, and it should work. Or do you use a different setup?
