0 byte initrd file in kernel kernel-

I'm I seeing this wrong or is the initrd file in kernel-
a zero byte file and that's why I can't boot with it

( get this "kernel panic not syncing VFS unable to mount root fs on known -block (0,0)" message)

The kernel install script runs mkinitrd to create the initrd, try running it manually and see if you get an error.

To remake the initrd image log in as root:
su -

# cd /boot

# mv initrd-<kernel-version>.img /var/tmp/

# mkinitrd initrd-<kernel-version>.img <kernel-version>

example: # mkinitrd initrd-
