kernel 2.4.21 probs

Post by David M No » Fri, 11 Jul 2003 09:58:33

I just built the 2.4.21 kernel. It goes with no problems. But when it
comes to the grub configuration, I'm confused. It is set with ro
root=LABEL=/ But this just brings on a kernel panic, it cant load device
"LABEL=/" It asks for a proper "root=" boot option. Please help. My hard
drive is connected to a pci card since my bios is too old to have a 60gig
hd. My root directory is at /dev/hde5, windows /dev/hde1, boot /dev/hde2.
Any Ideas?

1. FYI: Network prob w/ upgrade to 2.4.21 on A7N8X [Solved]

2. Serial probs with 2.4.21-ac4 (slow, poss 2.5x serial driver)

Can someone explain why the 2.5x serial drivers (in 2.4.21-ac4) are
breaking my PCMCICA modem? I'm using it with 2.4.20-8 (Redhat stock)
fine on /dev/ttyS0 with IRQ 3, but 2.4.21-ac4 (I'm assuming
they're backported 2.5/2.6 drivers) insists on assigning it
(although it is seen on /dev/ttyS0) and it will only work very, very
slowly (minicom takes over a minute to return the init string) unless
set to IRQ 0 (which is then also pretty slow).

I'm using a laptop so need the -ac series for the cpufreq patches and
the acpi support.

Any help appreciated
