DOS filesystem: kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount fs on 03:01

DOS filesystem: kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount fs on 03:01

Post by Paul B. McBri » Wed, 03 Jan 1996 04:00:00



I am using Xdenu HdX 2.1 to set up a couple of 486's as X-Terminals.
The linux files are in the DOS partition in the directory linux.
On three 486 33 Mhz systems that I have tried it on, it installs and
starts linux successfully, but on a 486 66 Mhz system it fails with
the message:

        kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount fs on 03:01

Before this, the start up messages are as follows:

* Partition check
*  hda: hda1 hda2       [Note: on the working system this is hda2 had3 hda4]
  [MS-DOS FS Rel. 12, FAT 16,check=n, conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022]
  [me=0xf8,cs=4,#f=2,fs=1,fl=196,ds=393,de=512,data=425,se=0,ts=214199,ls=512]
  Transaction blocksize=512
* UMSDOS Beta 0.6 (Compatibility level 0.4, fast msdos)
  [MS-DOS FS Rel. 12, FAT 16,check=n, conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022]
  [me=0xf8,cs=4,#f=2,fs=1,fl=196,ds=393,de=512,data=425,se=0,ts=214199,ls=512]
  Transaction blocksize=512
  kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount fs on 03:01

The lines marked with a "*" appear on both systems, and the others
only appear on the one that fails. On a working system the next
message would be "Mounting root".

Any idea what is happening?

Hi, Paul..

I am a new user to the Linux os and,
I had the same problem when I was trying to boot the system.
I am using Pentium 133 mhz.
I got the error msg:
kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount fs on 02:1c

did you get the idea what is the error msg mean ?
could you please let me know ?

BTW do you know what is "fs" mean ? does it stand for File System ?

thanks,
Indra

Look at your /usr/src/linux/Makefile.
check the ROOT_DEV= entry,  It was set to CURRENT and I changed it to
my root partition. (/dev/hdb2 in my case) then ran 'make zdisk'  and
that worked.

Also if you Hard Disk is non-SCSI ensure that 'Normal (MFM/RLL) disk
and IDE disk/cdrom support' entry during 'make config' is set to 'y'.

Yes, I think that fs = File System.
I've just resolved the same problem on my computer,
Step one, during 'make config' , answer 'y' to 'Normal (MFM/RLL) disk
and IDE disk/cdrom support'  (set this for non-SCSI Hard Disks) and
then look at your /usr/src/linux/Makefile (after 'make config') and
look for ROOT_DEV=. This was set to CURRENT and I changed it to my
root partition (in my case /dev/hdb2) and then 'make zdisk (or
zImage'). This worked for my set-up.

Kernel Panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 03:01

This is the message I get when trying to boot Linux now. I recompiled a
new kernel and now it doesn't boot, it stops at this message. I have
compiled the kernel at least 4 times and everytime I get this. I can
boot the old kernel from a floppy. Do I have lilo setup wrong? Someone
told me I may have to do something with rdev and making a patch to the
new kernel with boot partition. I don't know what that means, but it
sounds like something I should try. Someone else told me to do something
with 'mkinitd'. I really need some more details, these vague
suggestions, while they are appreciated, are not really helping me.
