kernel panic after changing initrd for bootsplash
im running debian (etch) on a 2.6.15 kernel, which i just recompiled so i could use bootsplash. i backed up my initrd file and then did
splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/themes/current/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg >> /boot/initrd.img-126.96.36.199
when i rebooted, i got my pretty bootsplash theme, but i also got this:
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM diskimage starting at 0
VFS: CAnnot open root device "hda0" or unknown block (0,0)
Please append a correct root= boot option
Kernel panic- no suncing: VFS: unable to mount fs on unknown - block
pointing grub to my backup initrd file solves the problem, but then i dont get the nice debblue background.
so whats the problem? the splash command above obviously isnt making a working initrd file, but why not? and how do i get past this problem? google has shown me that lots of people have had this problem, but no one has given any solutions...
