I have a Dell laptop with Ubuntu 11.10 installed. It is the host for 3 virtual machines (also running Ubuntu 11.10) installed using KVM.
I need to recompile the kernel of each virtual machine for setting some networks options, but when trying to boot on the new kernel I get the following:
Gave up waiting for root device".... "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/(ID) does not exist".
What I have tried:
- rootdelay 50, 60, ... didn't work
- booting with pci=nomsi (and other options)... didn't work
- Deleting the partition and starting from scratch... got the same error.
- The kernel on my PC and VMs is 18.104.22.168-generic-pae
- The kernel I am trying to compile is 3.0.1
- There is no /etc/fstab when trying to boot from the new kernel
- The uuid that the new kernel is not finding is exactly the one I see on the /etc/fstab of the original kernel
Can anybody help me?
