    Subject[2.4.18-ac1] Unable to mount root fs
    I successfully patched and compiled 2.4.18-ac1, no problems.
    But when I try to boot the system, the kernel is unable to mount the
    root filesystem (/dev/hdf2):

    request_module[block-major-33]: Root fs not mounted
    VFS: Cannot open root devices "hdf2" or 21:42
    Please append a correct "root=" boot option
    Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 21:42

    The bootloader-options are correct, a 2.4.18 kernel with exactly the
    same config-options has no problems with mounting the root fs.
    hdf is secondary master, connected to a Promise UDMA 100 controller on
    an ASUS A7V.

    The boot-option in grub.conf looks like

    title Linux-ac(2.4.18-ac1)
    root (hd1,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-ac1 ro root=/dev/hdf2 hdc=ide-scsi
    title Linux (2.4.18)
    root (hd1,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18 ro root=/dev/hdf2 hdc=ide-scsi

    but only 2.4.18 works.
    Is this a bug or did I miss anything?

    Microsoft is a cross between The Borg and the Ferengi.
    Unfortunately they use Borg to do their marketing and Ferengi to do
    their programming.
