Hi,

I am a newbie here.
I compiled my first UML 2.6.8.1.
When booting it using root_fs.md-8.2-server.pristine.20020324, I got

  Kernel panic: write of switch_pipe failed, err = 0

My host is Mandrake 10.2 with Linux kernel 2.6.11.
My gcc is 3.4.3

I saw other people posted similar errors, but didn't see a solution for 2.6.8.1.
Could someone please show me what I did wrong?
Thanks,

Chip
