System Fossil age laptop
, Debian testing with lilo.
After 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.
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.
