I'm new to UML.
I'm trying to run it with a very simple root directory mounted through
hostfs. I started out like so:
$ mkdir root
$ mkdir root/dev
$ mkdir root/sbin
$ cp /sbin/init root/sbin/init
$ linux ubd0=root
I expected this simple setup to get init started in the VM (without finding
inittab, obviously). but it doesn't work, the kernel seems to start
normally, but then says:
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
Why is that?
My host is a RH-7.2 and my UML is 184.108.40.206um-0.
