SubjectProblem booting 2.6.13 on RHEL 4
Hi list,

I am using RHEL4 distribution, and am trying to boot with vanilla
2.6.13 stock kernel. My system has two onboard Adaptec SCSI
controllers. I am booting using initrd, and passing the correct
"root=" option. The following message pops up while trying to boot
with 2.6.13:

Loading scsi_mod.ko module
Loading sd_mod.ko module
Loading scsi_transport_spi.ko module
SCSI subsystem initialized
Loading aic7xxx.ko module
Creating root device
umount /sys failed: 16
Mounting root filesystem
Mount: error 6 mounting ext3
Mount: error 2 mounting none
Switching to new root
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

When I boot the default kernel supplied with RHEL 4, it boots successfully:

Loading scsi_mod.ko module

Can some one please suggest me what could be the problem? I doubt if
there is any option I need to enable in the kernel configuration?

Any pointers are welcome,

TIA,

Rajat Jain
