Whoops

sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x413c product=0x8137

This would be the correct command, forgot those values are hexadecimal.

I'm getting ready to install the new kernel. Do you know if the card support needs to be enabled seperately? I can't find a option to do that.

The website I followed on how to install the kernel uses Lilo, but I use grub. As it didn't automaticly configure grub I had to do it myself.

The kernel didn't install a initrid file and I searched around about this and noticed that I only need it if the kernel only depends on modules or something like that. So what I did is the following:

Code:
title           Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (recovery mode)
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=97f69d92-ee47-41a7-92b6-c37e3a942561 ro single
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic

title           Ubuntu 7.10, memtest86+
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/memtest86+.bin
quiet

### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST

# This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
# ones.
title           Other operating systems:
root

title           Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.24.1
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24.1
The last section being the part i added manually. But when I select it at start up I get a kernel panic saying "Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8.5)

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

hi this card ( dell true mobile 5520) has GPS build in..but this GPS is activated only on Latitude D630 ATG (under windows) but under linux there are 2 data interfaces ( under win is one interface disabled except latitude D630 ATG there are two).
is there way to check if one is for GPS and one for modem?

rgds,

Your kernel has root filesystem support as module, all functions required to boot must be compiled into kernel, not as modules.

I do have the D630, but I don't know anything about it or how it works. Do you have one? I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting a kernel panic error. Driving my up the wall. I'm gonna start panicing!

Emerson, I didn't even see the post about modprobe. The results are the same before and after running modprobe.

I can't find the root file system support in the kernel. Can it be calls something different?

Thanks.

root filesystem - the partition and filesystem where / (root of system, not superuser) resides. Usually EXT3.

Edit: If you are using SATA or libata drivers make sure SCSI and SCSI disk support are compiled in, too.

If you are using make menuconfig go to file systems;
here they are;

the * means support is compiled into the kernel so you don't need an initrd, a m means you do.

Thanks comprookie,

I tried that now, but still the same problem. I've got a other thread related to this here. Some guys just posted something there, so I'm gonna check that out. Will be nice if you can have a look at the thread. I need all the help I can get.
