Custom kernel not booting...
Had a custom kernel (188.8.131.52) running under Slackware 12.1 and also the same kernel on an Ubuntu 10.04 machine just fine, however after a clean install of Slackware 13.1 this kernel no longer works (This kernel was re-compiled with the same .config file under Slack 13.1) as I keep getting the the following: -
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,3)
The strange thing is it keeps looking for the root file system in hda1, however the stock 13.1 kernel finds it in /dev/sda1 so the root partition is /dev/sda1 in lilo and the harddisk is known as /dev/sda.
I think I may know the problem, but not the solution!
