I'm running SuSE 7.0 Pro (kernel 2.2.16 with loadsa patches).
I want to upgrade to 2.2.18 (I'll also try 2.4.1, but as a test
environment only, for now). Since I have an Asus A7V133
motherboard, I needed the ide patches to support the hard drive that
is connected to the Promise Utra100 controller. Kernel compiled fine.
Boots up fine, detects all 4 IDE devices but then panics, claiming
it can't mount the root filesystem because the device has unsupported
I'm booting from a hard drive that's attached to the motherboard's
controller (which has a VIA 82CXXX chipset, for which support is
compiled into the kernel), so there should be no problem (in fact,
the SuSE kernel I use is the 'eide' version which also has the
support for Promise & VIA compiled in).
What's going on? Most likely I enabled some configuration option I
shouldn't have (or vice versa), but which one?
