small / large problem. I've recompiled a kernel for a guy with a Dell 2450
running RH6.2, kernel is 2.2.14. The box has 2 x 18.2Gb hard drives connected
to an Adaptec AIC-7899 scsi card, and they are not mounted as a RAID set.
As far as I know, the /boot and / dirs are both below the 1024 cylinder
limit. When setup from the CD, it works fine, but with the recompiled kernel
I get the following message at boot;
request_module[block-major-8]: Root fs not mounted
VFS: Cannot open root device 08:06
Kernel panic : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on 08:06
I have compiled the aic-7xxx module, and done make modules, etc., etc.
The / is /dev/sda6, sorry, I can't remember the rest of the setup.
Hope someone can help....
