Description Charles Erwin 2004-02-09 18:14:55 UTC
A message occurrs on bootup of "Kernel Panic cannot mount root filesystem".  This did not happen the first time, when I had not enabled devfs I simply got a message that Gentoo would not be functional _unless_ I went back and enabled it, so I did that and now I get the kernel panic.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge gentoo-sources
2. Compile with recommended options in install guide
3. unchroot, unmount, and reboot.

Actual Results:  
Kernel paniced.

Expected Results:  
Boot I suppose...

AMD K6-2 300
64 MB Ram
ROOTFS: /dev/hda3   ReiserFS
BootFS: /dev/hda1   ext2
/dev/hda2 = Swap

Also, please add your /etc/lilo.conf or grub.conf and tell us whether you're using genkernel, and what revision of gentoo-sources you tried. Thanks.
