i'm trying to install the 2.6 kernel on my debian unstable system. configuring with make menuconfig and compiling with make-kpkg kernel-image works fine. also installing, with dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.0_10.00.Custom_i386.deb spits out no errors.
i added also kernel information into the /etc/lilo.conf:
running lilo says:
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not match '/dev' directory structure.
Name change: '/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc' -> '/dev/hda'
Added Deb24-22 *
but that was that way before, so i don't think that matters.
when i restart and try to boot with the new kernel, i get:
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on hda2
then, a seconds later, it prints out: <7> drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.c: bc00: suspend_hc but i guess that has nothing to do with my problem.
i tried a lot of things, from many pages with that problem, eypecially http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/1882 but this brings no soloution for me.
also interesting: the precompiled package from debian, kernel-image-2.6.0-test9-1-386, which is available via apt, prints out something similar: VFS: cannot open root device "302" or unknown-block (3,2) please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (3,2)
here goes my config: http://home.arcor.de/mortthemurder/mort_13.config
