Problem wiht Kernel upgrading, Kernel Panic: ...

Post by Yanovsky Dav » Tue, 25 Jul 1995 04:00:00



  I have problem with upgrading kernel. At last I decided to upgrade kernel from antique
 version "Linux-1.1.18" to "Linux-1.1.95". I think I did every steps of compilation correctly
 and no problems were occured. The problem starts after rebooting the system.

   "Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02"

  Fortunately I builded lilo.config file correctly and I was able to load old version of kernel.
 My lilo.conf file is :

--------------------------------------------------
 LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
append="cdu31a=0x340"
boot = /dev/hda2
#compact        # faster, but won't work on all systems.
delay = 50
vga = normal    # force sane state
ramdisk = 0     # paranoia setting
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hda2
  label = Linux-1.1.18
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
  root = /dev/hda2
  label = Linux-1.1.95
# Linux bootable partition config ends
-------------------------------------------------

I also used 'rdev /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /dev/hda2'. I made bootable disk with
new Kernel on it. I examined to pass arguments to 'lilo' at boot time. For example:

-------------------------------
LILO
boot:
Linux-1.1.18     Linux-1.1.95

boot: Linux-1.1.95 boot=/dev/hda2 ( or boot=/dev/hda2 )

...................................................................................
...................................................................................
( Some Kernel booting messages )
...................................................................................
...................................................................................
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02
(System halted)
------------------------------

 So may be someone can give advice.

Looks as though you neglected to compile kernel support for the filesystem
type for your root partition.  Make sure support for whatever fs is on / is
compiled into the kernel.
