"kernel panic : no init found " error with user-mode-linux
I downloaded the uml patch for kernel-2.4.22
I applied the patch ... made uml ....
The root filesystem i used was toms filesystem...
The uml managed to find the root filesystem but it gave a
"Kernel Panic : No init found . try passing init = as a boot option ".
Well toms root file system has init under /bin .... /bin/init is also there in the search path as given by the man page of bootparam. ( man bootparam ).
I tried init = /sbin/init
init = /bin/init
init = /bin/sh
But still it doesnot work
any ideas how to rectify this?
There cannot be spaces in kernel options, IIRC. It must be "init=/bin/init" or similar. (No quotes of course)
i didnot put any space after the init= ....
i passed the options as
$ ./linux ubd0=/dev/fd0 devfs=nomount init=/sbin/init
