Firstly, please CC me in replies as I am not subscribed to the list.
I'm trying to build kernel 3.5.4 and 3.6.2 to work with EL5. Each time I
try to boot this kernel, I get a panic stating it can't find /
The same kernel config works correctly in EL6 (without the
CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED and CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 options set)
The documentation I have found states that for compatibility with EL5, I
should enable the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED and
CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 options in General Setup.
I have done this as shown:
# grep SYSFS /boot/config-3.5.4-4.el5xen.x86_64
# CONFIG_GPIO_SYSFS is not set
# CONFIG_DMI_SYSFS is not set
The system however does not boot. I have also tried passing
"sysfs.deprecated=1" on the kernel line in grub with no success.
I cannot seem to find anything further that could cause this issue other
than a fault in these kernel options.
I have added a few attachments (kernel config, screenshot of panic)
which I won't attach to the list:
Can anyone much wiser than me assist here? How can I help debug this
