Kernel Panic


I use Gentoo 1.4 .. today linux froze up .. i rebooted and no it gives me "kernel panic", stating it can't mount my root partition which is reiserfs. .. I booted of a disk, tried to mount it myself and nothing .. fdisk -l shows that it's there. I'm guessing the problem is due to the fact that it didn't unmount .. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Sean

Check your lilo.conf or grub.conf.... is it properly setup. It seems like you linux don't know where is your "/" partition.

I made no changes to my grub.conf .. I've been using the same conf for a while now .. I'm thinking a reiserfschk is in order after doing some research .. but im not too sure .. more feedback please
