Ubuntu :: And 64bit - Gave Up Waiting For Root Device (Boot Args (cat /proc/cmdline))Jun 18, 2010
I had to reinstall 10.04 because I got an error, waiting for root device. And I figured I knew why I got this error: I changed my xconf.cfg (or whatever the file is in /etc/x11/) -- So this time I downloaded the 64 bit, because I have a 64 bit computer, so though, might as well get it! I've narrowed the problem down to this:
After I install nvidia settings (the x server or whatever?) And change my view to TwinView (I have my laptop monitor and an external monitor), and save the config file, this happens. I will do some more testing, but here is the whole error message: Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system not wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
