Kernel panic - not syncing error
I've had suse 9.1 for a couple of months and everythings been great. I just installed kernel 2.6.11 after reboot I get the following error:
cat: /proc/fd: no such file or directory
/init: cannot open ./dev/console: no such file
Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Is there anyway around this? i've tried running a repair install but it didn't help.
oh and I had to upgrade to mkinitrd 1.2-11 cause kernel 2.6.11 requires mkinitrd 1.2 or higher and I had 1.1 before
I tried using a knoppix live cd to boot in and chroot into my install but I get this error
Bash: /dev/null: permission denied
I can edit the mkinitrd file but I am unable to save the changes. Anyone know how to chroot successfully using a live cd or how to resolve the kernel panic issue?
