Well, I considered that, but the standard F10 kernel boots without any problems from both
the USB flash disk and the SD card. It is only when I use my optimized kernel that I face
problems booting. I enabled all the options that I could find in the kernel config which I
thought were related to booting from USB devices but apparently I missed some.

Hi everyone, I'm building a custom kernel optimized for the Eee

tried installing it on a USB flash disk, or SD card, and booted, I got the following
Unable to access resume device (UUID=<UUID>)
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No such file or directory
I'm assuming there are some packages necessary to boot from USB devices that need to
be included in the kernel config which I didn't include. Can anyone give me an idea
what those packages might be?
some random guesses..
mkinitrd probably doesn't support booting off of the mmc device.
or if it does, perhaps the mmc modules are missing from the initrd.
