Recently, I just downloaded few vanilla kernels from www.kernel.org
, I have tried to compile the kernel and surprisingly i got few errors while trying to reboot using the new kernel.
The error message i got from the 1st screen is :
Kernel Panic- not syncing: VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknow-block (0,0)
So i thought maybe in the grub.conf i should change the root=/dev/hda5, but after i changed it to dev/hda5, the errror message changed to :
Kernel Panic-not syncing: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel.
I have include ext2 and ext3 file system type to my kernel, and i just wondering which step that missed out or did wrongly.
