I really want to us FC6 but have just wasted about 8 hours. I can get Ubuntu 6.1 to install
if I pass it inotifyd at boot time during install. Afterward it works OK. Seems like
it is a RAM disk problem.
On FC 6 I can find no way to not past a couple of errors. First I get a CRC
error if I just try and go down the normal path. Yes, I've checked the disk. If
I pass inotifyd it does get farther along and then gives the famous message
containing Kernel panic not syncing VFS unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (9,1)
I am wondering if there are two problems one being the ramdisk issue which
is fixed by using inotifyd and two it is just not recognizing the SATA drive.
Here is the set up. ABIT SG-80 DC which is a SIS 661FX MB, a Intel 805 dual core,
512MB Corsair memory, Samsung 160GB SATA drive.
The thing works with Ubuntu 6.1 just fine but I don't like Ubuntu at all.
Please, can anyone point me in the right direction?
