What type of filesystem is your root filesystem? when you configured your kernel did you compile that filesystem module? That is the problem I had a while back, I had a EXT4 root filesystem but did not configure EXT4 in my kernel.

Temporarily, if you need access to your system immediately, I would switch back to your old Kernel. Let me know if you need help with this.

Did you configure/compile the new kernel yourself, or did you download a binary?

If you did configure the kernel yourself, did you add ext3 support? Did you create an initrd?

Thank you budy..
but my system automatically creates initrd.img copies it to /boot dir
i had downloaded the kernel source from kernel.org
extract it to /usr/src dir
then in the extracted dir i had type following commands

/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.53#make mrproper
/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.53#make xconfig


after configuring kernel in various way like
xconfig,oldconfig, even i apply old configuration file for configuration.

/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.53#make
/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.53#make modules_install install


my terminal displays lots of process and at the last it shows system.map and initrd.img with vmliuz-2.6.27.53 to /boot

after that i had just reboot my system for new kernel
at the boot up my grub displays me both kernel version,after clicking the newer ver the kernel panic message appears.

is their any binary available for newer ver of kernel.
and yes i can access my system with old ver. of kernel.
i had add all file type support with ext2,ext3 and DOS/FAT/NTFS
i am using ATA/ACPI hard drive by FUJISTU.
is their any problem due to my HARD DRIVE

is their any thing wrong in my commands or in steps.
please tell me.
i am most awaited for your reply it my 8th time kernel compilation but still i have no success.


Thank you lewisforlife. its all upto you yar..

Did you enable SCSI in your kernel config? Would you mind posting your kernel config here and I will take a look at it. In the meanwhile, please post the contents of:

lspci
/etc/fstab
/etc/menu.lst or if you have grub2 whatever the config file is named
fdisk -l
e2label /dev/sda2 (or whatever your root partition is)

Oh yeah, and what distro are you using?

Hmm... I am not to familiar with grub, have someone else take a look at your grub entry and make sure it looks right. As far the sound and video issues, you might create a new thread for those, they might get more exposure that way.

Let me explain My self to you this is not funny this is a question asked very often in this forum. Since I live 2 block from National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois. And Many students this time of the year are beginning to understand the kernel and the GNU. I believe if you could understand a fstab and post it and a grub menu.1st you would understand where I am coming from. for the years I have helped with hardware and answered questions in this forum I do also understand what courses are being handed out. the 2.6.27 is old stuff and is well documented.
solved
