kernel panic after Mandriva 2006 installation
- View SourceHi guys
I'd be really grateful if you help me through this one
I installed a fresh Mandriva 2006 distro, the installation went on
without any problem, the boot loader works fine, but when I try to
boot linux, the kernel panics and freezes. It says it cannot mount
root FS on /dev/root and finally dies when it cannot find init.
I tries both LILO and GRUB, no ACPI/APIC options
My drive is 120G SATA on SIS chipset (SIS180 Raid), ASUS P4S800D MB
with P4 2.8GHz.
The linux root partition should be /dev/sda6.
The strange thing is that I tried some other distros earlier and had
no such problem whatsoever, everything worked OK.
Thanks for your help, I hope someone has an idea about this issue
