Boot Problems :(
I'm experimenting with making my own 'boot ramdisk' and I get
the error message 'Warning: Unable to open initial console' or
something along those lines after the kernel initialises and
attempts to execute init.
I'm loading the kernel w/ loadlin with the following...
loadlin c:\bzImage root=/dev/ram initrd=c:\ramdisk.gz
My kernel is the same kernel I use for 'normal' bootup
(which works btw).
The ramdisk image was created on a loop device using the following...
mke2fs -b 1024 -m 0 ramdisk.img
and contains the following directory structure...
libc.2.2.so (not sure if that's the exact filename)
rc.sysinit contains only the following lines...
shutdown -h 0
