Hi, I recompiled my kernel, and it keeps giving me some messed up error messages!
# ERROR #
Kernel Panic: Unable to mount root fs or 00:00.
When i try to fix that by changing the "root=LABEL=/" setting in grub to "/dev/hda5", i get a "try to pass an init= option" error.
How could I fix this, and why is it happening? I just want a working kernel that I recompiled :P! Could it be due to the fact that i'm removing SCSI options from my kernel configuration before I compile it?
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,5)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda6
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
