I installed Debian Sid with Kernel 2.6.8-2 and everything was fine, but after I downloaded kernel image 2. 6.11-1 I can't boot into the old kernel anymore--- following message repeats endlessly during bootup:
kernel cannot convert a name into device number.
check your 'root=' argument passed on boot by bootloader.
/sbin/init: 360: cannot open bin/root: NO such file
umount : bin: not mounted
/sbin/init: 362: cannot create proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev: Directory nonexistent
cat: proc/cmdline: No such file or directory
umount: proc: not mounted
What does this mean? So I should check my "root= argument"...where is that located and what should I look for?
"kernel cannot convert a name into device number" is that referring to my logitech webcam? Sid had at the very beginning actually detected my quickcam pro 4000, but now my 2.6.11 kernel can't find it anymore...
Thanks a bunch!
