Ok I am using grub, when I looked at the .conf file it had the partition number messed up, after changing it to the right one though it still panics and says it needs "init=" for the kernel line. My kernel line is something like that:
That's exactly how it looks it loads the splashimage now so 5 is the correct partition ... thx a lot for your help trickykid
# 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
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
title Windows XP
Oh and smth else during install it asked me if the grub was to be saved in the same partition or in the MBR and I told it the MBR that shouldnt make a difference though...
Originally posted by don_dimo I think i know what im missing .. there needs to be a link to stage1 with init but do u know the exact syntax for that??
I think it would be just a simple init=<value-inserted-here> but unsure if that would work. I'm not the greatest in using grub but from what I'm skimming thru from google.com searches, it appears most of the time changing and verifying the root partition fixes the issue. Are you sure or for certain that is correct in your setup?
