Re: [Xen-devel] VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)

What distro are you running in the domain?

gentoo. same as dom0. I used the instructions in the documentation to make a clone of the base system on the lvm partition.

just a little bit more information when I actually have the root = /dev/sda1 in place, the failure is:

VFS: Cannot open root device "sda1" or unknown-block(8,1)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)

I am assuming that since root is a command line option for a kernel invocation, that the path it refers to is from the perspective of inside the kernel which means the disk translation is in place.
