Thanks for reading,
I am using Debian as a distro and it usses a cramfs initrd file when it
Here is the output from the original initrd file and the one created by
initrd.img-2.4.20-686: Linux Compressed ROM File System data,
little endian size 2920448 version #2 sorted_dirs CRC 0x2e79d9f7,
edition 0, 1565 blocks, 200 files
initrd-lvm-2.4.20-686.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, max
Has some of you myth have seen in earlier posting my system wil not boot
When I use the initrd I have created with lvmcreate_initrd.
Here is the message:
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 3a:00
So I think the problem has to do with the fact that my kernel expects a
File and not a gzip compressed.
Any idea's in howto solve this ?
