I am trying to compile the 2.2.13 kernel on a machine that is
running software raid and has / mounted to a raid device. The machine
is basically a vanilla RedHat 6.1 install. Two disks (IBM 13 GB) with
various raid partion. /boot is not 'raided'. Everything runs fine with
However, after compiling 2.2.13, mkinitrd, lilo and such, it paniks
at the following point:
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
Loading raid1 module
raid1 personality registered
Bad md_map in ll_rw_block
EXT2-fs: unalbe to read superblock
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 09:00.
The kernel is based on the standard 2.2.13 source with raid0145-
19990824-2.2.11 applied (I get the same error message without).
I did a 2.2.12 recompile just to see and it worked fine (no error).
I mounted both initrd's and don't see a difference (2.2.13 has the
newer raid1.o of course).
