Question: How can i make/rebuild the "/dev/root" file
Background: I had two installations of PCLOS-KDE installed, up to date, and perfectly working. I installed Debian 6.0 onto a separate partition. After the installation it installed grub 2. after that i could not get either pclos install to boot. when using a remastered usb drive and a live cd, the "setup boot system" in pcc showed no operating systems in the auto populated list. I installed pclos on yet another partition and at that time it showed one of the previous installs and my windows install. After installing and verifing the new install would boot, I corrected the grub code, for the now visible previous install, to boot the pae kernel and removed the "resume=" section as it had previously caused issues hanging the boot process. now it gives me a kernel panic stating it cant find the file /dev/root. I have gone in a looked from the third pclos install and verified the file is indeed missing.
