temporary shell enviroment using initrd
I am a new in kernel development and using Fedora 9. Sometimes a make certain changes in kernel, compile it and boot using qemu.
qemu -kernel vmlinuz-2.6.*.* -initrd initrd-2.6.*.*.img -hda /bin/true
It boot the kernel and leave me with message root can't be mounted.
I want to make modification in initrd so that, after loading kernel it drop me at shell like enviroment in qemu.( similar to what we get in 'linux rescue') . If i got any temporary shell enviroment i can test my newly modified kernel without restarting system.
