I just finished installing 11 on my Dell 1650 1U using adaptec.s. The install completed without an incident. Howerver on boot I get the above error and the server just halted
. Here is the error from the console:
NET4: Unix domain sockets 1.0/SMP for Linux NET4.0.
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k block-major-8, errno=2
VFS: cannot open root device "803" or 08:03
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:03
Looking around the culprit seems to be the linuxrc script on initrd. The only way I get it to boot is from the distro CD and this command at boot:
adaptec.s root=/dev/sda3 noinitrd ro
I tried with modifying /etc/lilo.conf and added
root = /dev/sda3 noinitrd
but it didn't help. I wonder if /etc/lilo.conf is read directly on boot. What am I missing?
Does anyone have any suggestion on how I may resolve this?
