I'm trying Gentoo 2004.1 on a IBM 7046-B50.
I cross compiled a kernel 2.4.26 that boots successfuly on my B50 and placed it inside a install-ppc-universal-2004.1.iso. Now I can boot direct from CD, but I'm not being able to load the VFS root from CD.
phoenix is the kernel I cross-compiled.
I tryed this:
boot cdrom:,\boot\phoenix root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc initrd=/boot/initrd.img.gz load_ramdisk=1
And I got this error:
cramfs: wrong magic
sh-2021: reiserfs_read_super: can not find reiserfs on ramdisk(1,0)
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00
