Installing Alpha Core 2 on Multia
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
It's been a while since I've needed to do anything with my little machine and the hard disk is dying after ~7 years of service (that's after the last hard disk died after "only" 4 years). Since the hardware does fine for acting as my cable-modem gateway/firewall, I thought I'd try a more modern version of Linux for it. Evidently my brain has dumped too much of how to install and/or some things have changed I haven't kept up with because of too much machine reliability (if there is such a thing). Anyhow, I crank up Milo and try to boot and keep getting a kernel panic after it loads the kernel when it tries to mount the root file system. I've tried the following perturbations of the milo boot command with no success: milo> boot sr0:kernels/vmlinuz_milo.gz root=/dev/scd0 initrd=sr0:images/cdrom.img replacing /dev/scd0 with /dev/sr0 and /dev/cdrom doesn't help nor does leaving out the root= option entirely (says cant mount device NULL) I'm assuming I have to tell milo and the kernel to use the cdrom as my root device but I can't figure out what that the correct device nomenclature is. I'm using an external SCSI cdrom that says it's device 6 on the chain. I've been using an IDE hard disk for my current RH7.1 setup and plan to use a new IDE disk since I've had pretty good luck so far. I can't help but feel like a n00b asking what parameters to use but I'm stuck at this point. I'd appreciate any help from the list...
