Subject2.6.0-test3 cannot mount root fs
From
Hi friends!

I am trying 2.6.0-test3 but cannot get the kernel to mount /dev/hdb1
which is the root fs.

I tells me all the usual stuff concerning that it finds the controllers
(VIA and HPT) and disks/cdroms, but than hangs with
cannot mount rootfs "NULL" or hdb1
I have compile in (of course) the filesystems of my root fs (ext3) and
everything else I thought may be necessary, or at least what has been
necessary up to 2.4.22-rc2.

hardware: athlon, via686 ide + hpt366/370 ide, linux is un hdb

here my config options for ide:
CONFIG_IDE=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDISK=y
CONFIG_IDEDISK_MULTI_MODE=y
CONFIG_IDEDISK_STROKE=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEFLOPPY=m
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI=m
CONFIG_IDE_TASKFILE_IO=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI=y
CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA_PCI=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_PCI_AUTO=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_AUTO=y

for FS:
CONFIG_EXT2_FS=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS=y
CONFIG_MINIX_FS=m
CONFIG_ROMFS_FS=m
CONFIG_ISO9660_FS=m
CONFIG_ZISOFS=y
CONFIG_ZISOFS_FS=m
CONFIG_UDF_FS=m
CONFIG_FAT_FS=y
CONFIG_MSDOS_FS=y
CONFIG_VFAT_FS=y
CONFIG_NTFS_FS=m
CONFIG_PROC_FS=y
CONFIG_DEVPTS_FS=y
CONFIG_TMPFS=y
CONFIG_RAMFS=y
CONFIG_HFS_FS=m
CONFIG_CRAMFS=m

Unfortunately I cannot capture the output of the boot of 2.6.0, but I
would happily compare it to one's dmesg output. So if you have 2.6.0
running with via686 can you send me the dmesg after boot, so that I can
check what there should be or what I am missing.

Thanks a lot

Best wishes

Norbert
