Re: [linux-lvm] Can not boot: unable to mount root fs:



Herbert,

I could send you a boot log but there is no information in it (to this problem) because the system locks up before it mounts the root (or other) partitions. Sorry your right that I should have included the boot loader, as it is grub. I am not sure what your wanting here, if it is a file or for me to discribe what I selected in the configuration. If it is a file please let me know what directory it is in and I will be happy to include it. I did select LVM and ext3 in the configuration.

Thank you for your help,

Sam.

So far I can not compile and boot any kernel from 2.4.19 - 2.4.21. I get the below error message:

VFS: cannot open device 3a:00
kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs 3a:00


send some more information, like a complete
bootup log, your boot loader and your kernel
configuration ...

best,
Herbert


I took this from an archive message and it should be very close to the message I get except for the device number. I think mine says 1a:00 as I am only using ide and not scsi. The system locks up and I have to manually press the reset button to reboot.

I have checked the archives but could not find a solution.

Also the kernels I get from Redhat can boot just fine, but they have turned off my sound card so I need to regen the kernel. I have tried to get ahold of Redhat by phone, e-mail and newsgroup but no reply.

Regards,

Sam Rogers.
