Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've got a machine running Centos 5.2 I had had previously compiled kernel version 184.108.40.206 and it's been running fine. I now want to upgrade to 220.127.116.11 but can't seem to get the new kernel to boot. Everything goes fine right up to the point where it tries to find the root filesystem then I get a kernel panic. My root partition is on an Areca SATA raid controller that uses the arcmsr driver module, but is also contained inside an LVM group.
The error message that I get before the panic is that VolGroup00 can't be found. I can't tell if it's because the arcmsr module is not being loaded or if it has something to do with the LVM support. I can't find any options in menuconfig to turn LVM support on or off.
I've tried compiling the arcmsr support both as a module and directly into the kernel, and I get the same message either way. Even tried running mkinitrd was --preload=arcmsr to no avail.
Did something change between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 that would affect the LVM system?
The config for the new kernel was mostly identical. I added the options for tickless system and increased the timer rate to 1000hz, but beyond that nothing much changed. I made sure that I compiled the appropriate sata modules and drivers for my raid card and then made sure I built an initrd with those modules included. Still get the same result.
