System hangs at "Switching to new root"!!!!!!!!!
I m using a 126.96.36.199 custom compiled kernel, and i m
using a 512MB compact flash(my root filesystem is on a partition of compact flash),
to boot an x86 based board.
I just need a login shell ( a prompt) with some basic commands n nothing else.
But when i start booting,the system hangs at line
"Switching to new root"
I m using grub as boot loader, and initrd created by mkinitrd command.
wot can be the problem???
ANY INPUT IS APPRECIATED!!!!
