Problem to update Kernel, Kernel Panic.

Problem to update Kernel, Kernel Panic.

  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.

 
 
 

1. RHN Update to Kernel 2.4.18-24 Kernel Panic

Hello,

I know this is more a RHN question, but I was wondering if anyone else
experiences problems updating their kernel through RHN.  I've tried at
least 3 times to update my kernel, most recently to 2.4.18-24.

Each time I perform the update and reboot to use the new kernel I get a
"kernel panic: no init found".  It uses the same kernel parameters as my
original installation (a P4 1.8GHz Intel pentium with 512MB RAM).

I've yet to notify Redhat of this, but am looking for any information from
people in the newsgroup.

Thanks,
John
