can't boot after change from devfs to udev [SOLVED]

after upgrading the kernel it tells me that it's now going to use udev and i have to change my menu.lst like this

kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part3 ro
to
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro

casually my prior entrie was =/dev/discs/disc0/part3 so i changed it to root=/dev/hda3 but now grubs says that it can't find the hda3

i changed the values here to hda0-hda9 with no success anywhere

if i press tab in /dev (being in grub command editor) it shows me just console,null and another thing but no devices

:?:

Re: can't boot after change from devfs to udev [SOLVED]

Are you using a SCSI or SATA drive? If so, it's sda3, not hda3.

if you are using sata you really should be using kernel26-scsi.

Really? Is there any benefit?

I have an SATA drive but I chose the kernel26-ide and my devices are name sda2, sda3 and it's working.

Now I'm thinking whether I should switch to kernel26-scsi...

its just better geared toward sata support. It severely lacks in the ide department though. I don't know the specifics, I was told this by a dev on IRC.

Re: can't boot after change from devfs to udev [SOLVED]

the erro was in root (hd0,0) what should be root (hd0,2)
cause grub has overwritten the file after i adjusted it...
