Re: kernel compile - Unable to mount root fs

This is a bug in the 2.6.30 source.  The quick work-around for this is:

	update-initramfs -c -k "uname"

"uname" being whatever you've named your custom kernel & do it without 
the quotations.

Check to see if there is now an initrd-image file for your kernel in the /
boot directory & if there is do an "update-grub" & you're good to go.


A person needs only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move
and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
