Centos Kernel Upgrade Issue
I've got a machine running Centos 5.2 I had had previously compiled kernel version 126.96.36.199 and it's been running fine. I now want to upgrade to 188.8.131.52 but can't seem to get the new kernel to boot. Everything goes fine right up to the point where it tries to find the root filesystem then I get a kernel panic. My root partition is on an Areca SATA raid controller that uses the arcmsr driver module, but is also contained inside an LVM group.
The error message that I get before the panic is that VolGroup00 can't be found. I can't tell if it's because the arcmsr module is not being loaded or if it has something to do with the LVM support. I can't find any options in menuconfig to turn LVM support on or off.
I've tried compiling the arcmsr support both as a module and directly into the kernel, and I get the same message either way. Even tried running mkinitrd was --preload=arcmsr to no avail.
Did something change between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 that would affect the LVM system?
