Kernel 2.6.3-7 works, and thats the only one.

Recommended Posts

Guest GentooBox

Hi there.

 

I have just installed Mandrake 10.0 official with kernel 2.6.3-7 and it works fine.

but when i update the kernel to 2.6.3-14 or 2.6.7 then it crashes at bootup with something like this:

 

Super_fill_reiserfs-something

Could not find reiserfs on hda1

 

I compiled my own kernel from kernel.org (2.6.7) but it crashes with the same error.

 

EDIT: found the same error here:

 

http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?sho...l=reiserfs&st=0

 

Mounting sysfs

well, retrying without the option flags

Maby it could be because the new kernels assign the drives wrong ?

 

hda becomes hdb ? :help:

Welcome to the board!

 

Are you using rpm's I guess?

 

Do you have a /boot partition? or is your '/boot' in /?

 

Are your hd's switched in the bios? e.g. master/slave?

 

.....just shooting in the dark here :D

Maybe you compiled your / filesystem as a module in the kernel. eg if you're using reiserfs for your / partition, it must be compiled into the kernel, not as a module

i use reiserfs, and its compiled as a module.

 

It works now.

The new kernel assigns my hd as sda instead if hda. - i just edited lilo.conf, and then it worked again.

 

i tryed to make my own kernel, but when i did a "make install" in my kernel tree, then it failed and said that some options had to be compiled as modules.

sda is usually for USB device filesystems.

 

Pesky conf files - you need to be dead sober when setting 'em up :P

Im, guessi9ng your lilo.conf had an append=hda,ide_scsi or something ?

 

on ypoutr kernel compile is that a 'clean' kernel.org or a mandrake kernel.

 

Mandrake kernels are usually heaviliy patched only sometimes they forget to say how :D I havent tried booting from reiserfs but it will need compiling as part of the kernel, not a module to boot.
