The kernel isn't the only thing panicing!
I bought a new mobo, CPU and memory. I installed them into a new case I had. I then took my "old" working 1TB HDD, PS, video card and DVD device and installed them in the new case. Simple. Booted up and changed the display from on board to the card (like my "old" setup) and then tried to start PCLOS.
It hung on the bull so I booted into failsafe and got:
"waiting for device sda1 to appear (timeout 1 min)
"waiting for device sda5 to appear (timeout 1 min)
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attecmpted to kill init!
pvd: 1, comm: init not tainted 184.108.40.206-pclos6 pae #1
Call trace [etc....]
I don't get it. I changed NOTHING with the hard drive or sda1 or sda5.
Jerry Panic is soon to happen.
Anyone have any suggestions of what I might do short of reinstalling the OS?
(I'm reaching out courtesy of a PCLOS 2009 live CD)
Update - I suspect the problem is my bootloader BUT when I try to set up a bootloader with the live CD it doesn't work. Then again I don't know what I'm doing so what I AM doing is probably wrong.
