I need to compile a USB device(floppy) bootable kernel for a fresh slack installation on my sexy N505VE laptop.
However, by following all the intructions I could on google. the kernel I compiled still doesn't boot correctly.
Preliminary USB device filesystem
USB Mass Storage support
compiled into kernel
Such kernel could recognize the USB floppy drive by specifying root=/dev/sda
But then after mounting root=/dev/sda, it gives an warning says 'Warning: unable to open an initial console' then 'Kernel panic: No init found'
I think I am getting close to boot up the laptop via a USB device.
Could anybody give some guidance please?
