    I'm using Ubuntu Hoary with kernel 2.6.10-5-i386

    This is what I do for install:
    - download from ubuntu's repository the package "linux-source-2.6.10"
    - I insert tar.bz2 souce file in a new directory called /usr/src/uml
    - Untar with "tar -xvjf"
    - enter in the dir with the source and digit
    make mrproper ARCH=um
    make xconfig ARCH=um
    make modules ARCH=um
    - at this point download "uml-utilities"
    - and test.

    For testing I downloaded from the official uml site Debian-3.0r0

    To launch I used:
    /vmlinux ubd0=PERCORSO_FS

    But uml exit with this error:
    "Initializing Cryptographic API
    sleeping process XXXX got unexpected signal : 11

    actually_do_remove : couldn't open directory '/root/.uml/AbJ9iL', errno = 2
    actually_do_remove : couldn't open directory '/root/.uml/AbJ9iL', errno = 2
    Kernel panic - not syncing: Segfault with no mm"
    OR :
    "Initializing stdio console driver
    sleeping process XXXX got unexpected signal : 11

    actually_do_remove : couldn't open directory '/root/.uml/6nKFvh', errno = 2
    actually_do_remove : couldn't open directory '/root/.uml/6nKFvh', errno = 2
    Kernel panic - not syncing: Segfault with no mm"

    Thinking that I have missed some setting in the compile step on 2.6.x kernel I followed this how-to:

    http://uml.harlowhill.com/index.php/Troubleshooting
    Using this settings the error is different:

    "VFS: Cannot open root device "devicename" or unknown-block(x,y) Please append a correct "root=" boot option"

    I tried to append root=/dev/ubd0 or /dev/ubd/0 or /dev/ubda
    without better results

    Someone can give me a hand ?
