Did IDE block device label changed with Kernel > 2.6.27 ?
I try to compile a new kernel for my embedded systems using Vortex86DX and Vortex86SX CPUs.
If I try to boot the kernel 188.8.131.52 I get a Kernel Panic "not syncing - VFS unable to mount root fs".
I think this panic occurs if there is an invalid root= Option in from GRUB for the Kernel.
BUT: The device boots fine, if I use the old Kernel (2.6.27.x) with the same root= option.
Why does my old root= option not work with the new kernel. Was there a change in bloc device labeling??? From HDA to SDA??
I reused the old (2.6.27.x) kernel config for the new kernel, thus I don't think there is module missing.
thanks for any hints and help?
