I have an 8gb CF card installed internally in my Zaurus SL-C3100 and have been unable to install OZ successfully onto my Z. I installed rc2 before I replaced the microdrive.

The install process seems to go fine: Formating, extracting, reboot.

After that I get the OZ logo and below it: "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)"

Is something in the kernel looking at the drive's ident? What can I change in the tarball?

Anyone who EXCHANGED internal microdrive with OTHER storage card NEED to provide 'cardctl ident' output to us so we could add it into ide-cs so kernel will know that yout 'umbaumba' cf card is ide.

My Ridata 8GB Pro 150X Compact Flash Card provides the following cardctl ident:

Socket 1:
product info: "SMI VENDOR", "SMI PRODUCT", ""
manfid: 0x000a, 0x0000
function: 4 (fixed disk)


Should this be a bug report?

All that has to be rebuilt is the kernel, correct?

I don't want my flash card to be mounted with a journal. After the install will changing fstab be enough to make the partition mount as ext2?

I am now trying to remove the journal on /dev/hda1 making it ext2 not ext3. But I cannot remount / readonly even when booted without a gui.

Does this have something to do with the pivot_root?

What can I do?

Hrw,
my internal CF returns the following info :
product info: "M-Systems", "CF500", ""
manfid: 0x000a, 0x0000
function: 4 (fixed disk)

I would have thought that your updated kernel (above) would have worked, given it's the same manfidm but I get the same error as before. Any chance you could have a look?

Thanks very much!

I.
