Can't mount root device
Hello! I have recently gotten a base system installed (Debian 1.3.1 from
2-cd set). I am now trying to compile a custom kernel to get sound support
and IP Masquerading. The kernel package I'm trying to compile is 2.0.30.
I run Dos and OS/2 on machine as well, and I use the OS/2 boot manager.
Linux and OS/2 are on my SECOND scsi drive, and I have followed the How-To
to allow the OS/2 boot manager to invoke LILO, which then loads my Linux
kernel. All works fine with my base installation.
My problem is with the custom kernel. I use make config, make dep, make
clean, then I compile, then I use make lilo_install (or something like
that, I'm not at my home machine right now).
When I try to reboot, I get a kernel panic, with a message that VFS can't
mount the boot device 8:16. When make lilo-install completes, I get a
message about the boot device being 8:22. I can't provide more detail (or
accuracy), as I'm at work and the machine in question is at home. Any
constructive comments/suggestions are most welcome. I will try to get more
detail from the machine tonight and repost, if necessary.
Thanks for any help.
