Problem booting 2.6.8 kernel
I have built a 2.6.8 kernel, but booting it fails with the
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda3" 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)
The grub stanza used is:
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 ro
I have verified that ide support and both the ext2 and ext3 file
systems are compiled into the kernel, not as modules.
Where should I look for the problem?
