Kernel 2.6.22.5: waiting for root file system


Hello. I just booted into my new 2.6.22.5 kernel, and the startup process hangs on:

Code:
Begin: waiting for root file system... ...
After about 2 minutes, it finally returns "Done." Then, it shows this:

Code:
ALERT!     /dev/sda1 does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!


BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-4) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter "help" for a list of commands.

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs)
Can anyone please help? I am running Debian 4.0 Etch rev1. I still have my old kernel (the Debian default), 2.6.18-5-686, which is currently working fine. Could this problem reside in the kernel config file, in the GRUB "menu.lst" file, or in some other file?

Thanks,
drpixel

You should paste here the contents of your "fstab"-file (usually under /etc/), the "menu.lst" file and the output of the "dmesg" command.
Did you just update your kernel or modified as well those files?
Does the root filesystem reside on a different partition and/or disk than the boot filesystem (IF you have a boot filesystem).

pearlseattle: Just a quick question: what is a boot fs? I don't have the root fs on a separate partition or disk. Here is the output from the files/commands you mentioned:

fstab
Code:

I just cleaned out my /boot folder of my new kernel, and downloaded the latest kernel again (2.6.22.6 now). I am going to go through all of the steps again, and will post back here soon with the results.

Cheers!

Okay, so I recompiled my new 2.6.22.6 kernel and it still hangs on the same line on boot and still produces the same error (see above). Here is the output of dmesg and my menu.lst for grub.

You better have the /boot/ ... stuffs in the first /dev/sda
then grub-install --root-directory=/mysda1 /dev/sda
that's how I passed my harddrives problems with grub

Let's hope you can make it!

What about your "old" kernel? Do you still have it? Can you still boot from it?

@pearlseattle: Aha! I ran dmesg in my current bootable kernel, which is 2.6.18-5-686. Is it possible to run it under a nonbooting kernel? No, I am not running it off a USBHD, but I am running it off a VMware Fusion virtual machine.

HI,

i found a solution here:http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-100379.html

But, this only works for me (vmware-server 1.03 only for 32-guests.
The 64-bit guest can only use the lsilogic adapter
