I wanted to give a try to this shiny new release on my laptop...
I installed it with the huge kernel. So far, so good.
Then I tried to use the generic-smp-220.127.116.11-smp kernel, with an initrd (because we are on a reiserfs file system).
While booting, at a point of time I get these messages:
mount: mounting /dev/root on /mnt failed: No such file or directory
ERROR: No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted). Trouble ahead.
You can try to fix it. Type 'exit' when things are done
/bin/sh: can't acces tty; job control turned off
Tried a little googling ; somebody had a similar problem with -current but I could not find the answers (the message was only in Google cache):
Yes modules for 18.104.22.168-smp are installed in /lib/modules (otherwise I couldn't have made the initrd, anyway).
