    SubjectTrouble booting with new kernel
    Hello, I am running Kubuntu 7.04 on a mac mini (specs attached via
    info.html). For learning purposes I am trying to custom build a kernel from source and boot from it. My plan was to use the
    distributions .config file (and I specified the settings for options
    that were added since the last kernel included with Kubuntu which is
    (and is what I have now reverted to) Linux hexstar-desktop
    2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP Thu Jun 7 20:19:32 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux).
    I have attached the .config file used in the building of the
    kernel. Below is the error:

    Starting up...
    Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
    [ 32.227452] i8042.c: No controller found
    [ 32.228426] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs
    on unknown-block(0,0)

    That is the correct block however and it is of ext3 format. I have
    made sure that the ext3 module is built into the kernel and have tried
    it as a module and both times I get the same error. I am not sure why
    it can't find the controller? Does my controller not have support in
    the latest kernel?

    Please CC me replies to this post, thanks! :)
