"2842 controller - Kernel panic VFS: unable to mount root fs on 1:02"

Post by vidur kapo » Tue, 28 Feb 1995 06:06:14



I have an adaptec 2842 VL Controller :
I have been trying to install Linux :
I got 1.1.59 from sunsite.unc.edu and then got the aic7xxx.tar.gz from
ucalgary.ca.
Compiled the kernel - the machine froze on me 3 or 4 times during
kernel make.
the zImage file created I wrote tp a empty formatted floppy
and booted: The kernel is 1.1.68 and it gave the above message.

Any suggestions.

Also when I boot off an bootdisk+rootdisk the root filesystem is mounted
on /dev/fd0 with minix.
How can I have my Linux partition on hard drive be mounted on e.g /dev/sd2
be mounted on /

Otherwise I have to copy files from /mnt/usr/include/* to /usr/include.

Thanks for your help,
