I'm trying to install Gentoo Linux (2.6.24-r7) via terminal on a Netra 240 (originally running Solaris). I'm able to boot from the Universal CD 2008, but after compiling and installing, I get the following error on reboot.
[ 51.903873] VFS: Cannot open root device "sda1" or unknown-block(0,0)
[ 51.988581] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
[ 52.098383] 0300 483180 hda driver: ide-cdrom
[ 52.160136] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
[ 52.268801] Press Stop-A (L1-A) to return to the boot prom
Can anyone offer any hints on what the issue may be?
Apologies if this has been asked before, I've searched through the forum but unable to find anything that can help.
