the problem huang described has nothing to do with linux at all! At least,
there isn't a linux module entry in his/her grub configuration. I'm not sure
why roottask got an invalid KIP mapping here, but would suggest to update the
whole l4 source tree and fiasco kernel.
Nevertheless, this has nothing to do with your (sunshine007's) problem. As
Adam has already told you, you probably have misconfigured your l4linux. You
need to include (_not_ as a module) your disk-controller and the filesystem
of your root partition whether it is a ramdisk, a harddisk or usb-whatever.
However, this is not a L4Linux specific thing, you will run into the same
problems when using native linux.
There is a lot of helpful information on how to boot a linux kernel without an
initial ramdisk on many linux related sites. Potentially it would be easier
for you to configure a native linux and boot it, without the whole fiasco and
l4env stuff. When your native linux boots without usind an 'initrd', then you
can transcribe your linux configuration to l4linux and try it again.
