installing 2.6.8 on 2.4.27-2 kernel panic due to SCSI hdd
Hi there
I am installing debian sarge on a machine that has 2 SCSI HDDs , these are on onboard raid connectors but I don't want to use the raid function , anyways....
I installed debian succesfuly , but I tried to upgrade the kernel , which is included in the CDs ( not downloading from web )

after installation I recieve kernel panic ,Attempted to kill init because it cannot find the proper devices :

in 2.4.27-2 kernel , everythings are on hdg1 , I know this kernel assumes that my HDD is an IDE , but in newer kernels , they like to run under an SCSI HDD , so they cannot read fom hdg1
I changed the /etc/fstab , and chaged every hdg to sdg , but still I have the same problem

Somebody please help me

is there anyway to install the 2.6 kernel from the sarge CDs not the 2.4 by default?

Yes just type linux26 at the prompt

what does it do?
You mean while I'm in 2.4 kernel shell?

dracae 02-23-2006 05:20 PM

at the boot prompt, it will boot off the 2.6 kernel and install the 2.6 kernel

Thanks a bunch

That is what I am saying, if you take the net install cd
boot it
at the boot prompt type linux26
it will load a 2.6 kernel and install 2.6.(8?) instead of the default 2.4
