Kernel Panic with new kernel in slackware


Hello I installed Slackware 10.0 with kernel 2.4.2 (i think?), so seeing that it was still a 2.4.x kernel I decided to upgrade to 2.6.9, so I download the new kernel , compile it and install it. I followed every single step I was supposed to do but then at reboot I get this:

Kernel panic - not syncing:VFS:unable to mount root fs on unknown block (56,2)


I'm not quite sure what to do, I ran liloconfig before I rebooted and I installed lilo again, any help would be very much appreciate. I have NTFS Windows XP on another partition on this computer.

If there isn't a way to fix this is there a way to reinstall my old kernel? Or am I going to have to format and reinstall the whole distro?

sounds like you probably have reiserfs and didn't enable that support in the new kernel, it isn't by default.

I believe ext3 is enabled by default if you do "make mrproper". (At least I think that this happened at home, few days ago...).

Maybe it's a lilo.conf problem, no?
