after kernel upgrade, wont boot, but not as the others...

Hi, I upgraded my kernel, rebooted, Got the error that I was supposed to have.

So I edited my menu.lst like this:

#  /dev/hda3   /dev/discs/disc0/part3   (hd0,2)

title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro devfs=nomount

And now I got the same error:
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda3" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS:

I looked over all these kind of threads, and found nothing!

Because It is supposed to work well now that I edited my menu.lst, but It still dont work, I tried many things... but without chances...

Thanks for your help!

Re: after kernel upgrade, wont boot, but not as the others...

Note: I'm new to Linux and Arch, so...

Here is what I have in my /boot/grub/menu.lst

title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro apm=power-off
initrd /initrd26.img

This is all guess work, but you might try changing "root (hd0,2)" to "root (hd0,0)"  (my root is on hda3, but my boot in on hda1)
I also have that "initrd /initrd26.img" after the kernel line?

Anyway, just a guess?

Re: after kernel upgrade, wont boot, but not as the others...

try this:

title Arch Linux
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro devfs=nomount
initrd /boot/initrd26.img

not having the initrd line is probably where your problem lies.

Yes, that is probably your problem... While we're at it, devfs=nomount is not necessary with a 2.6 kernel.

That probably wouldn't do much good, since apparently (hd0,2) worked for him before wink

afaik it's definately the missing initrd.
