Thread: No init found

    No init found

    I have Mandrake 9.0 and I installed some packages from the CDs (I was trying to satisfy some gtk2 dependencies in order to install GAIM .63). Well, after that I could not start kpackage or I rebooted and now it wont boot, right away after choosing Linux from LILO I get:

    Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

    I tried googling some, but didnt see anything I could use.

    I know I made a boot floppy, but I cannot find it.

    I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks for the tips, but I had already reinstalled from scratch after backing up my data.

    lol, that'll do it. If you are keeping your /home dir on a separate partition, then you don't need to back it up, and you can keep most of your configs
