See that post.
Any suggestions for Pyro01's issue?
("Kernal panic - not syncing: VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,19)")
I have exactly the same with the same conditions and i'm unable to find the solution
Thanks for Your quick reply but unfortunatelly it's still not working.. I have the same issue.
Any other suggestion?
post your lilo.conf and your complete mount set up including the host pc and the usb
Thanks for your help in advance

your syntax is wrong. Clearly you didnt even bother to research the root delay command.
This is what it looks like and should go with your other append command
append = rootdelay 10
Also I would lose this line "initrd=/boot/splash.initrd" until you get it working.
EDIT: in fact this lilo,conf is all F**ked up try this:
Code:lba32 boot=/dev/sdb prompt timeout=50 change-rules vga=0x317 image=/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb3 label="BT4" read-only append = rootdelay 10 append=quiet
Yes finally it's working.
Thanks very much!
Yes i should search on the command before i just copy and paste it. Sorry
By the way as i searched a bit more i found this:
A more preferable work around is to specify in the lilo config
which overrides the lilo supplied root= argument, and causes a different
path to be followed though the init script, this path detects that the
/dev/sda1 device has not yet been created by udev and waits for that to
happen, before then successfully mounting the root device and continuing
So thanks very much again!
installed yesterday on a mac pro with 16gig. worked like charm expect it only shows 2 gigs of memory. now i am well aware it is all 32bit but anyhow, would it at least be somehow possible to adress at least 3 gigs? or would there be some possibility to use some kind of pae for adressing more than just this 2 gigs?
Hardware: Acer Aspire One AOA150-1029
Just a couple of observations I encountered while installing BT4 on my HDD.
When I got to the step: mkswap /dev/sda2;
I received an error message that said "/dev/sda2: Device or resource busy". In order to get past this, I first had to type in:
and everything continued fine after that.
Also, the default DPI settings for the internal video chipset were set incorrectly by default, they have to be adjusted to 96 x 96. If left to their normal settings, the font for applications looks really big! In order to achieve this, you have to modify your xorg.conf file. Below I have posted my updated xorg.conf
Hope this helps someone!Code:Section "Device" Identifier "Card0" Driver "intel" VendorName "Intel Corporation" Option "NoDDC" # You need this to set correct DPI (HUGE font issue) EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" DisplaySize 195 113 # This will set correct DPI (96 x 96) EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Configured Screen" SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Modes "1024x600" Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "synaptics" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/event8" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7" EndSection
Install worked perfectly. I was worried because BT3 will not load on this acer I have but BT4 is working flawlessly. Thanks a lot pureh@te.
