Kernel 2.2.12-20smp will boot up fine as will other 2.2.12smp kernels
I have compiled for my RedHat 6.1 box.
However, on trying to compile my own new 2.2.16smp kernel,
I get this error:
Kernel panic: No init found, Try passing init=option to kernel
I've also tried booting with
My new 2.2.16smp kernel has ext2 support, SCSI support both for hard disks
and for the Adaptec controller, and boot messages indicate that these
devices are recognized OK and that the partitions are seen(sda1 sda2 sda3
Here is linux.conf: "linuxold" and "linux-up" boot, "linux" won't.
You need an inital ram disk when your root resides on a SCSI disk. Try adding
to the "linux" entry of /etc/lilo.conf. Then rerun lilo and reboot.
