Now I got it compilied... there's another prob!

Post by Buzza24 » Sun Apr 18, 2004 6:35 pm

Is it just me or do other people have problems compiling the 2.6 kernel?

I have just finished compiling and installing the 2.6.4 linux kernel but when I tried to boot it, a problem arose.
These are the last 5 lines when I tried to boot it the rest before that was fine.

Code: Select all

 
mount: error 19 mount ing ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root (/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed : 2
umount /initrd/proc failed : 2
Freeing unused Kernel memory : 240k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to Kernel
What am I doing wrong?? :(
I have this same error both when compiling and when I ran an RPM of it.
Your help is greatly appreicated. :D

Do you have ext3 file system support compiled into the kernel (not a module)? If you don't then you need to create an initrd file that contains the ext3 module. Would be easier to just compile it in though. Also, what does your kernel boot line look like? You might be trying to mount the root file system using the label method (root=LABEL=/) and the kernel may not support it so you could change it to the real partition name (root=/dev/hdax).

The kernel 2.6.x series requires to update some packages..If using ext3, on RedHat 9, u need to update the jfsutils since it requires v1.1.3. Thing is where can I dl this update? Its the only thing keeping me from compiling 2.6.4...

o util-linux 2.10o # fdformat --version
o module-init-tools 0.9.10 # depmod -V
o e2fsprogs 1.29 # tune2fs
o jfsutils 1.1.3 # fsck.jfs -V
o reiserfsprogs 3.6.3 # reiserfsck -V 2>&1|grep reiserfsprogs
o xfsprogs 2.1.0 # xfs_db -V
o pcmcia-cs 3.1.21 # cardmgr -V
o quota-tools 3.09 # quota -V

JFS is a part of ext3 since ext3 has jounaling....OK, I think I found the update..

I really wish linux's LVM was up to par (functionality-wise) with IBM's. I'm a unix engineer by trade, so I guess I get spooled. It's come a long way, though. :)

AIX by the sounds of it. :)

AIX, Sun, and a spattering of Linux. :)

Note that I didn't speak highly of Sun's filesystem implementation... the old system V 7 slice limitation is ridiculous... we're forced to encapsulate volumes with Veritas Volume Manager. Just adds to the cost. :P

I hear that sun's volume manager is now actually usable, but we still use Solaris 8, so we're not even looking at it.

Yeah, we're running Solaris 8/9, AIX 5.x and lots of Linux. I started my UNIX journey with AT&T UNIX on a 3B2 ~1992, quickly followed by AIX 3.2.5 and Linux. About the last 7 years primarily Solaris and Linux (with a smattering of HP-UX, SCO, FreeBSD, AT&T Unix and probably a couple I'm forgetting). I am no fan of Sun's RAID and LVM by any stretch of the imagination. AIX kicks some butt in that area, but Linux is by far my favorite of them all. In fact I'm even running it on UltraSparcs and Alphas at work now. :) IBM will have all their code in Linux here sooner or later.

I don't believe this is so, do you have any links that detail how this works?

I'm struggling to see why that means you need the latest version of jfstools in your system.
I don't even have JFS in my kernel and i'm going OK.
Could you explain it to me please.
