Kernel panic problem

Kernel panic problem

Post by Ronald Daya » Wed, 21 Apr 1999 04:00:00

Hi all,

I am having a problem with booting the latest version of the kernel
(2.2.6). A brief backgrounder:

I am/was running RedHat 5.2 with the latest fixes/patches.  After
downloading and updating the system in preparation for upgrading the
kernel, I proceeded to build the kernel and install the image along with
the file in the /boot directory.  I did a mkinitrd and
everything looked fine at that point.  After running lilo -v to verify
that lilo executed properly, I rebooted the machine.  During the boot up
process I got a kernel panic message.  It appears that the system could
not find the root partition.

I tried to boot off of my resucue disk but I received a 0x10 error.  I
have the following configuration:
    400 Mhz Pentium II processor (Asus P2B-F motherboard)
    512 MB RAM
    Adaptec 2940UW SCSI adapter
    3 4GB Seagate Barracuda HDs
    1 8GB Seagate Barracuda HD
    Matrox G200 Video Card (8MB RAM)
    Hitachi 21" Monitor
    Intel EtherExpress/Pro NIC

Disks 0 and 2 have WinNT.  Disks 1 and 3 have Linux.  I am using System
Commander to dual boot the system.

It looks like the kernel is not installing the adaptec driver at boot up
time.  If this is the case how do I fix this?  Also, I have compiled the
SCSI adapter as a loadable module.

Has anyone experienced a similar situation?  If so, how did you resolve
it?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Has anyone else seen this?
