I installed fedora, and it works fine with its own kernel, 184.108.40.206-42.fc8.
I want to set up a network diagnostic server (npad) on the machine, and according to
the manual for npad does not work with the distribution kernel, a "new" kernel from kernel.org must be installed.
I downloaded kernel 2.6.18 from kernel.org, and compiled it with the config of the working kernel.
When booting the following errors occured:
No volume groups found
Volume Group "VolGroup00" not found
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys failed: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
title fedora (2.6.18)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgh quiet
title fedora (220.127.116.11-42.fc8)
kernel /vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-42.fc8 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgh quiet
Can anybody help, what is the problem?
thanks in advance,
