Cannot open root device "rd/c0d0" or 00:00
Posted on 2003-03-08
After installing Suse Linux 8.1 (Kernel 2.4.19) on a system using the Mylex DAC 960 PD scsi 3#ch-RAID with one system drive, the boot progress stops with the following messages:
VFS: Cannot open root device "rd/c0d0" or 00:00
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
VFS: unable to mount root fs on 00:00
... Hhmmm ?
Already compiled a new kernel with support for DAC960 and reiserfs (not as modules) - no success.
My installed system runs perfect&stable when started from cd with the "manual-installation->booting a installed system from root=/rd/c0d0p3" - option, BUT: booting form the installed&configured grub-loader (on the MBR=rd/c0d0) still gives the same error message as described above.
Here is my fstab:
/dev/rd/c0d0p1 /boot (ext2)
/dev/rd/c0d0p3 / (reiserfs)
/dev/rd/c0d0p4 /usr (reiserfs)
What else is helpfull to help me out ?
thanks in advance for any suggestions, tips and help
