uuid not working on ancient Laptop
System Fossil age laptop, Debian testing with lilo.
SymptomAfter an upgrade (2nd week May), custom kernel compiled, kernel panics on boot, saying unable to mount root drive. (or more precise, unable to mount whatever uuid device). Stock kernel can boot.
Workaround Instead of uuid on kernel option, use prehistoric root=/dev/XXX.
================== added on edit
The kernel which panics is 2.6.38 (make oldconfig, all default answer from 2.5.32 config)
Stock is 2.6.32
On 2.6.38 after boot with tweak, the command "uuid" looks good.
Good to know, thanks man.
