 I tried to compile .94 and .93 and when I boot my machine from my floppy
with zImage on it...my Kernel panics saying it cant mount the root file
system. Whats up with that?

.90 is working just fine!

Did you compile in support for the FS-type of your root-FS?  On many
Linuxes, this is the ext2-fs..  Check your boot-messages from the working
kernel where it says "VFS: mounted root (XXX filesystem)"...  Also,
specify the correct rootdevice in your LILO-config or the kernel Makefile...

In the kernel Makefile, this is ROOT_DEV, in lilo.conf, it is the "root ="-
parameter, which can also be passed on the kernel's "commandline", at the
LILO-prompt...

1. Problems while compiling kernel 1.1.93 und 1.1.94

Hello everybody!

Ok, here I am back again. A few days ago I posted, that I have problems
compiling Kernel 1.1.93. Today I tried to compile 1.1.94 on my machine and I
got the same error again.

I am using gcc 2.5.8 and libs 4.5.26 (the standard in Slackware 2.0.1 and
2.1.0), I don't have any networking hardware installed and so I think I have to
include networking support (CONFIG_NET=y) in the Kernel but I needn't have to
include TCP/IP support or so (CONFIG_INET is not set ; CONFIG_IPX is not set).

This worked fine until I tried to compile Kernel 1.1.93, afterwards I am unable
to compile a kernel without TCP/IP. The fun is that I have had the same
problems some 20 or 30 patches ago and suddenly it was fixed.

BTW this error I get. What do you out there think is my problem?

See ya on the flipside,
