What could cause a newly compiled kernel to not find any file system
besides /hda ?
I just did an update from SuSE 6.4 to 7.3. The machine boots just fine with
the SuSE kernel (2.4.10). I grabbed the sources for 2.4.18, as that's what
I'm runing on other machines and compiled/installed.
It's a procedure that I've done maybe 5 or 6 times.
The new kernel fails during boot because it doesn't seem to be able to find
any partition besides /dev/hda
Swap activation fails, I can't find any of the /dev/hda?.
If I reboot the old kernel no problem, all the /dev/hda? partitions
If I do mount, it shows
/dev/hda1 mounted on / type ext2 (rw)
But if I do "ls /dev/hda1" I can't find it.
And if I do "mount -a" it gives me an error message for each entry in
my fstab file:
mount: special device /dev/hda<x> does not exist
(where x is 2..10)
Any suggestion ?
