Problem while booting with MY compiled Kernel
« on: January 25, 2005, 01:33:57 PM »
Dear friends,

I compiled kernel on Redhat enterprise linux 3.0 and follow all the as usual steps to compile it.

All the steps are finished without any problem. when in boot with my new kernel, it boot properly without any error msg.
but this time it is not showing
 all users Home directories
and other custom directory /usr /u01 /data etc.
 and showing only the root (/) is mounted.
while recompiling, it disable SCSI hdd only as my system hv IDE hdd.

can I hv to mount them separately thru fstab or

Is there any option I hv to pass with the Kernel so that it  mount all the Filesystem available there.

grub.conf entries
title Red Hat custom kernel
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /bzImagenew  ro root=LABEL=/
        initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img

Thanks in Advance,

You have not mentioned about the partitionson your computer.
Generally people have 2-3 partitions one for / one for /boot and one for /home etc.. If this is the case with you then these partitions have to be mounted at boot time to be shown in the root directory. Just edit your /etc/fstab.
