I'm using archck 2.6.14, but since i'm using archck my system clock is running too fast (it runs +-29s too fast on half an hour, rather irritating)
I noticed it since I moved form 2.6.14 tot 2.6.14archck, so I think archck might be the problem, but I'm not shure.
So I want to try stock arch kernel to see if it has the same problems, but it won't boot :-(
Did archck something to my system that makes stock kernel no longer work?
my /etc/mkinitrd.conf and /etc/initramfs.conf are the same, except the fbsplash part. I'm also using software raid0, but that's normally no problem, everything should be configured right.
the error I get:
pivot_root: pivot_root: No such file or directory umount: /initrd: No such file or directory umount: /initrd: No such file or directory initial RAMDISK Loading Completed...

I did a reinstall of kernel26, and afterwards a "mkinitrd kernel_version=2.6.15-ARCH"

can anyone help?
Are you sure you're using the correct name of the initrd image? Unless you changed it yourself, it defaults to initrd26.img...
You can also try the initrd26-full.img and see if that helps.
I am a gated community.
when you create an initrd with kernel-version=xx it will make initrd-xx.img instead of initrd26.img
But I created an image using mkinitrd auto and mkinitrd full, the mkinitrd auto gives the same problem, the full gives a hard lockup when he tries to load some scsi driver (I do have a scsi card for my scanner, but it was on another driver it freezes)
Also as for the time problem, give the latest ArchCK a shot.
Check out the thread here for details on installation and usage.
Thank iphitus, that solved my problem!
I just wanted to try stock kernel first to see if my hardware clock running to fast is due to the archck patchset or not. Now it seems I have the same problems running stock kernel.
So it has to be a problem with the stock kernel, or something has gone wrong with my hardware :cry:
