I've tried to update my 2.4.9-XFS kernel to 2.4.14-XFS. But when I make a
rpm -ihv kernel-2.4.14-SGI_XFS_1.0.2.i686.rpm

i don't get an initrd-xxxxx.img to be done. I tried with mkinitrd and I got a .img, so I edited my grub.conf to get it to use both 2.4.14 files (vmlinuz & .img). When I rebooted the computer I got this error:

Kernel Panic
No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel.

I'm almost sure that I made the initrd file badly, or something like that.
I did't get such problems with 2.4.9-XFS.

?Any suggestions?


Any XFS filesystems involved in the boot process? Unless you have a special
version of grub that is not going to work. Also, if this is related to your LVM
striping performance, try using the cvs kernel and building your own,  these
rpms are now really out of date.
