Perhaps it's an old question, but there's still some trouble for me to resolve it.
In my CentOS3.5(On vmware),recompilied to the lastest 184.108.40.206 kernel and then reboot, the following error messages display:
VFS: Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Here, /dev/sda3 is my "/" mounting point.
I searched in google,and this forum, refer to :
Check the "/usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11/.config", the buglogic is enabled. Review "/etc/fstab", it is "/dev/sda3" and I need not to change "hda" to "sda".
These two test all failed.
Would you please give me some advance?
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
