    Kernel panic

    Hello

    I have Ubuntu x86 for my AMD64. I have downloaded the kernel 2.6.11 from kernel,org and I want to compile it. No problem during the compilation but when I reboot my computer, I have this kernel panic error :
    Code:
    kernel panic : not syncing; VFS; Unable to mount root fs on unknown-bloc (0,0)

    Very bad !
    Here's my menu.lst from grub :
    Code:
    title      Windows XP
    root      (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader   +1
    
    title      Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.11.050305
    root      (hd0,5)
    kernel      /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11.050305 root=/dev/hda6 ro quiet splash
    initrd      /boot/initrd.img-2.6.11.050305
    savedefault
    boot
    
    title      Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.11.050305 (recovery mode)
    root      (hd0,5)
    kernel      /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11.050305 root=/dev/hda6 ro single
    initrd      /boot/initrd.img-2.6.11.050305
    savedefault
    boot
    
    title      Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.8.1-5-386
    root      (hd0,5)
    kernel      /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8.1-5-386 root=/dev/hda6 ro quiet splash
    initrd      /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8.1-5-386
    savedefault
    boot
    
    title      Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.8.1-5-386 (recovery mode)
    root      (hd0,5)
    kernel      /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8.1-5-386 root=/dev/hda6 ro single
    initrd      /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8.1-5-386
    savedefault
    boot
    
    title      Memory test
    root      (hd0,5)
    kernel      /boot/memtest86+.bin
    I have the kernel panic error even if I compile with the Debian method (make-kpkg) with or without the initrd option.
    Thanks for your answers.

    Bye bye.

    I have Ubuntu x86 for my AMD64
    does that even work?? Perhaps the new amd64 kernel doesnt like all the x36 software??

    Re: Kernel panic

    Hi. I just registered to this forum for this question. I used linux the first time about 4 days ago and i wanted to have dvb support so I compiled the new kernel, which was, let just say it wasn't very easy for a complete linux newbie but i got that same message so many times it still haunts my dreams =), Well anyway after a LOT of recompiles i was led to the fact i hadn't installed all the required IDE and SATA drivers in the kernel, so i suggest you go trough the config and try to enable the right ide drivers to boot your system. Hope this helps
