CRUX: panic on boot

Are you using LILO or GRUB? Can you send them over? Probably the problem is
that your boot loader (LILO or GRUB) is pointing to the wrong boot device
and or root location.

Subject: CRUX: panic on boot


I was trying to install CRUX but all I get on boot is "cannot mount root fs
on unknown-block" message.
I did everything as described in manual, I have also taken some steps to
include additional SCSI/ATA/SATA
drivers into the kernel, but I have no luck.
Can anyone please tell me how did you get your OS to boot? following
instructions from the official manual
gets me nowhere, even though I installed CRUX via qemu and on a real HW.

Thanks for any help,

- sorry for HTML, this is how my crippled e-mail client is configured by
now, I will change it as soon as possible
