It doesn't solve the problem, I have the same issue... And seeing kerneltrap
forums, we're not the only ones.
I fixed that problem by changing .config (it seems that oldconfig messed it) to
Now I don't get the
VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
but when booting, it shows:
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
and then just freezes.
Any thoughts on this?
