Kernel panic unless Return is hit at LILO prompt
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I've seen this on two customer machines:
if the user lets LILO timeout there is a
kernel panic; if RETURN is typed it
A workaround is to add an empty append line
Can you get me the details of these machines. We have not seen this
behavior in the test lab, so any help that you can give would be
I have the same problem. If LILO times out, there's a kernel panic.
VFS reports: "Cannot open root device 00:30." There is no default
boot command line, no fallback and the lilo options line is "ro
root=308" -- it seems as if the "8" is being ignored. David Cook's
workaround (APPEND = " ") solves the problem here. Thanks!
