when using the boot options
debug initctl_debug vga=790
I'm able to see the hardisk is being mounted alsa
is activated netfiler is being activated, but then
just stops giving me the:
VFS cannot mount on root filesystem error
keep in mind this is when using "any" option
in PCI, when using MMCONFIG
im getting what you where getting
I'm just confused on how the system was working
without any errors with "Direct" in pci
and now none of the options are working.
The posotive side is better work this issue now,
rather than later. what I'll try is loading a fresh install
of nubuntu, and then compile the kernel with there .config
to see if I'm able to start. Also they added apparmor so I'm not sure if
this is causing problems as well.
