I have a strange feeling about what is happening:
I get the latest source code from www.kernel.org
(22.214.171.124). I put a standard configuration in .config file. I start xconfig
and put every IDE features as module.
Then: make bzImage modules modules_install install
Everything goes well.
In the initrd, there are 2 lines: insmod /lib/ide-core.ko
(I have to put them before libata SCSI support to be sure those modules are
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
Ext2 and ext3 supports are built in the kernel
By reading the configuration documentation, there should be an IDE module
I found an ide.o in the kernel building tree
but this module seems not to
be a .ko and isnt copied to /lib/modules/ during make install process
Is this a bug or a special features of kernel building where ide is no
more possible to be built as module ?
