Debian File System Missing????
I was trying to squeeze out more performance of my Woody box by using hdparm and apparently I inserted the line in the wrong startup script as now upon boot up I get a Kernel Panic FS cannot be found. I have a boot disk for this box but I get the error even using that. Its ReiserFS on 2.4.18bf kernel with all current dist-updates. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get to the file system so I can remove the line from the script or did I hose it and need to re-install? I have a Knoppix Disc I can try to use and mount the fs and may try that when I get home, but I was hoping that someone else may have a better idea?????

boot into rescue mode off of the debian CD, make sure you pass rescue the 2.4.18bf kernel parameter so it wont kernel panic Then you can take the line out, reboot, and it *should* work

Ill have to give that a try when I get home from work. Thanks!

Yeah, i've saved myself a few times with rescue mode But do make sure you pass it that kernel parameter or it's gonna get pissy and just kernel panic every time (you should get the same logo at the top as normal, you know the penguin one) they are different logos for each kernel, so if you pass the wrong one you will know before it panics

Do you know how to change that logo? Sorry, I know it's not related but I've been wondering._____

Actually no, it just boots a different one per kernel choice, although I did like some of the others better Not sure if you can change it ( I Would imagine you could though)

No workie.....oh well, Ill re-install it, good thing there was nothing major on it! Note to self, leave hdparm alone!

You can put a logo into your own kernel when you compile it using the frame buffer options.

Any idea where it's located? I could recompile no problem to put in my own logo
