After updating to 2.6.16-2-amd64-k8-smp on my Sun X4100 I rebooted and got the following error:
VFS: Cannot open root device md0 or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct “root=” boot option
Kernel Panic – not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
And this is where it will stop during the boot process. I am running a RAID1 on this machine. When the screen comes up to choose which kernel I want to boot, I press “e” to edit the grub/menu.list, but all looks well. Here is what I have:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-2-amd64-k8-smp root=/dev/md0 ro
I’m stumped, what options do I have?
Thanks in advance,
