Thing is I can’t get into a terminal
to use APT, it freezes right after this errorL.

Same as I have.
Correction.... HAD ;)
I found that the 2.6 pre-compiled debian kernel is
using ext3, reiser and others fs as modules. I did :
# apt-get install kernel-image.2.6XXX
# apt-get install kernel-source.2.6XXX
# apt-get install kernel-tree.2.6XXX
The last "apt-get" I think its no necessary.
note the XXX ! please change to your kernel variant. My is 686!
# tar xjf kernel-source-2.6XXX
# cp /boot/config-2.6* kernel-source-2.6XXX/.config
# cd kernel-source-2.6XXX
# make menuconfig
Configured to use ext3, xfs and reiserfs not as modules. Save and quit the
# make-kpkg --initrd --us --uc kernel_image
# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6_10.00.Custom_iXXX.deb
after all, I remove the lilo.conf and generate another as I don´t realy care
# rm /etc/lilo.conf
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
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:
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-2-amd64-k8-smp root=/dev/md0 ro
I’m stumped, what options do I have?
Thanks in advance,
