problem with no solution "kernel upgrade on centos 4.4"
i tried to upgrade my kernel to the latest kernel and i made it for about 10 times and in every time i reboot the server it never comes back online and the data center report it's a "kernel panic" and boot my old kernel again
at last i got the exact error that showing this
"creating root device
mkrootdev: label / not found
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
Switching to new root
Switchroot: mount failed: 22
unmount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attemppted to kill init!"
i really need a solution for the kernel to be upgraded and booting successfully
so any suggestions ?! i'm using centos 4.4
thamks for help
