currently I'm trying to create my very own slackware install cd with a custom kernel that will detect my hdd correctly as a sata drive.
I've compiled a 188.8.131.52 kernel for this purpose und replaced one of the 'original' kernels from the official slackware cd.
But when trying to boot this kernel I get a kernel panic, saying:
VFS: Cannot open root device "ram" or unknown-block(1,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)
I still haven't figured out why. :/
I tried some different kernel configurations but that didn't help.
I don't know if there's something else I have to do besides replacing the original kernel ...
As I'm still new to compiling kernels and all that stuff so I probably made a mistake or just missed something.
I'd be very(!) happy if someone could give me a hint on how to get rid of that kernel panic :>
