Hi there. I got a kernel panic caused by <mount: could not find
filesystem '/dev/root'> when I tried to install xen from the sources
(to compile modules on my own).

Now I have installed in my system Fedora Core 5 the following kernels:

2.6.20-1 xen0
2.6.16 xen
2.6.18-1 xen0

All of the kernels run ok except the 2.6.16 xen kernel, it causes the
kernel panic on boot. I downloaded this from the repositories in
http://xenbits.xensource.com/, the xen-3.0.3-testing.hg; I used
mercurial to get a copy.

I followed the Readme so I did

make world
make install

Then I had in my /boot what we ned to boot except the initrd. I made
it twice and none of them worked:

-mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod
initrd-      -> that's the Readme way
-mkinitrd initrd-       -> when the
Readme didn't work

I have no idea what the problem can be, if something similar occured
to anyone or anyone can give me a light about this problem it would be
a great help.

If someone needs more details about my configuration or else just ask me please.

One last thing, before the kernel panic occurs a warning appears. This
is about "unsupported acesses", it sais that there is a problem with
the /lib/tls and that because of this the system may run slow. If
someone believe that this is important I can copy here the exact
