It sounds like your root disk has been corrupted. There may even be a hardware problem with the root disk. But it is interesting that the loader was able to get the kernel into core in order to attempt the mount of the root disk. Was it looping attempting the reboot and repeatedly issuing the error messages? If so, the hardware may be ok.

This type of stuff varies among the various types of unix systems, so specific advise isn't possible. You probably have some bootable media like a cd that could be used to inspect the root disk. If so, try that and see if you fsck it. But I would guess that you will wind up needing to re-install the os.

I think the problem is my swap size. Because my machine ram is 128 MB swap is /dev/swap 1,41 389,120 389,120

swap definition is to big for Memory.

right ??

Having a very large swap space (much larger than RAM) will not cause a kernel panic........ However, having the root filesystem completely out of disk space might. Are your filesystems full?
