I am still trying to install Gentoo on a G4 iMac from the
universal-ppc-2005.1 disk (kernel 2.6.12-gentoo-r6), and I keep getting
this error message:
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda15" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing:VFS:unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
I read on the web that this might be due to some disks being misnamed
and read in the wrong order; a suggested solution was to activate the
options config BLK_DEV_IDE_PMAC (Builtin PowerMac IDE support) and
config BLK_DEV_IDE_PMAC_ATA100FIRST (Probe internal ATA/100 (Kauai) first).
I wanted to try this and configured the kernel accordingly; but then I
got a compile error:
drivers/ide/ppc/pmac.c: In function 'pmac_ide_setup_dma'
2174 error: '__ide_dma_off_quietly' undeclared
2175 error: '__ide_dma_on' undeclared
2184 error: '__ide_dma_timeout' undeclared
make: ***[drivers/ide/ppc/pmac.o] Error 1
make: ***[drivers/ide] Error 2
make: ***[drivers] Error 2
I looked at pmac.c, but I saw nothing obvious; is it a known error that
one could correct, or is perhaps a patch available?
Apart from that, what is the idea worth?
