Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17765
kernel panic booting cdrom
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
The system is a KP1000/667 with a cdrom on hda and two scsi disks.
Booting the cdrom results in a kernel panic:
Kernel Panic: No init found. Try passing init= option.
The SRM command was:
boot dqa0 -fi kernels/vmlinux.gz -fl root=/dev/hda
Using the boot floppies works fine.
Confirmed. This problem still exists in rc1.
You are not booting properly. Use:
boot dqa0 -fl 0
And how is a user suppose to know that they need to boot this way -- devine
inspiration?? At least put something into the README. The current README says
to look on www.redhat.com for SRM info. Good luck!
documentation issue aside ... ;)
does the "boot dqa0 -fl 0" allow the install to boot from CD ...?
if not, what level of firmware is on this machine ...?
thanks for your efforts w/this ...
boot dqa0 -fl 0 works!
Sorry I did not make that clear. The "only" problem now is to tell folks that
this is how to boot.
agreed. We are working with the documentation folks on this ... thanks for your
