Description Andreas Kumpf 2001-08-30 08:12:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Description of problem:
System hangs on bootup since ext3 module is compiled into ram disk

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create initrd with mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.4.7-2.img 2.4.7-2
2. Substitute entries in /etc/fstab with ext3
3. Reboot

Actual Results:  System hangs after loading the ext3 modules (ext, jbd) 
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot, /sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel.

Expected Results:  Normal startup with / journalled.

Additional info:

- I don't think there's a problem with initrd, since Ram Disk is found and 
the appropriated modules are loaded.
- I have to mount my installation in rescue mode to delete /boot/initrd-
2.4.7-2.img from lilo configuration. After this everything works fine.
- Other filesystems in my system are mounted with journalled function.
