TuxRugHi, everybody.  I am having trouble booting Crux in a virtual machine.  I followed the handbook, and I can boot with the kernel on the CD with my root partition13:12
TuxRugBut when I try to boot the kernel installed on the hard drive, I get "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" in grub.13:13
*** mrks has quit IRC13:14
mrks_TuxRug: did you compile support for your root filesystem into your kernel?13:15
TuxRugI get a different pair of numbers in lilo "unknown-block(3,2)"13:15
TuxRugI used the defaults provided by menuconfig, and I watched the compiler, it compiled ext3, I don't think it was made into a module13:17
TuxRugroot filesystem is on /dev/hda2 type ext3.13:18
TuxRugI have separate partitions for /boot, /, /var, and /usr, /boot is ext2, the rest are ext313:19
TuxRugI'm double-checking the menuconfig now13:20
TuxRugThe guest processor is a single core AMD Turion, should I change the CPU in menuconfig while I'm in there (default is Pentium Pro)13:22
*** krassel has quit IRC13:27
tilmanmy hard disk has a few bad sectors that i'd like to reallocate13:30
tilmani'd like to follow, but the problem is that the bad sectors are in an area of the disc that i've filled with an _encrypted_ ext3fs (luks)13:31
tilmancould overwriting those sectors fuck up the decryption of the data or something?13:32
*** mrks has joined #crux13:34
tilmani guess writing zeroes to /dev/mapper/foo (ie the mapped fs) should work13:35
TuxRugyes, ext3 support is built-in to the kernel13:36
tilmanthen again i probably cannot calculate the fs block the usual way13:36
*** mrks_ has quit IRC13:36
TuxRugWell I tweaked my kernel a little bit, recompiling now... la ti da time to get a snack13:41
TuxRugI don't understand why my kernel is unable to mount the root filesystem.  I know the device name is right, because I've booted the CD using the same root.  And my root fs is ext3, and I just checked, I compiled that in.13:50
jaegerdid you include the proper IDE/SATA controller support?13:51
*** RedShift has joined #crux13:52
TuxRugYep, I started with the defaults, and that didn't work, so this time I've made sure that EVERY intel-based IDE controller is built into the kernel, since my VM provides a PII4X to the guest13:53
RedShiftfor the most crash "recoverability", should an ext3 FS be mounted with data=ordered or data=journal? and why?13:53
RedShiftwith recoverability I mean least chance of data corruption13:54
spaceninjais c the most popular non oop language?13:54
TuxRugRedShift: I don't know, I just use the defaults, and have never had any corruption that wasn't caused in layer 8 (human stupidity)13:55
TuxRugMy last linux file corruption problem happend in a VM (thank goodness) when I accidentally wrote a blank mbr to the wrong disk (dd if=/dev/zero bs=512 count=1 /dev/hda when I meant sda)14:00
TuxRugDang I still can't get the kernel to boot.  Same error.14:24
TuxRugI'll try some more stuff later.  ttfn14:24
