I have a Ubuntu machine and I am trying to install a new kernel (188.8.131.52) and it recompiles and does everything nicely as per http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu_p2
which is an excellent website, btw. I tried booting to the new kernel but it after a long pause it always comes back with the error:
ALERT! /dev/sda7 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
But my other kernels are able to recognize this drive and boot no problem so why is this new one giving such a message? Does anyone know? Is there something I am doing wrong concerning the make menuconfig options? I have already compiled 3 other kernels and they all give similar errors. Actually there is one prior message, displayed before the long pause that says:
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0000:05:06.0.
I am not sure if that is related to the ALERT! error message but I thought I would let you guys know.
Prompt and descriptive help is always appreciated
Thanks in advance.
