[dump,restore] system => kernel panic?
hda1 holds /boot
hda2 holds everything else.
hda3 holds swap
everything was working so well i dumped hda2, then tried to test it using restore.
the dump command used was: dump -0f /path/to/hda2.dump /dev/hda2 .
then, after doing: mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hda2,
the restore command used was: restore -rf /path/to/hda2.dump
upon boot, it complains as follows:
Creating root device
mkrootdev: label / not found
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 128k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
the grub.conf section i typically boot to is:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.22-openmosix-2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-openmosix-2 ro root=LABEL=/
but grub.conf sits on hda1, which was not modified recently.
fdisk -l looks good for hd1 and hda2: both id 83. fsck says hda2 is clean.
cd'ing around hda2 looks good, i don't notice anything different with the filesystem.
anybody know what i'm missing? a clean setup is hiding in hda2 somewhere...
thanks if any ideas, - bp
