Help please- recompiled 1.3.18 kernel wont boot....

Post by Jean-Luc Pep » Thu, 07 Mar 1996 04:00:00



recompiled 1.3.18 from slackware 3.0  after installing 1.3.0 and the pathches 1 to 18.
the compilation seemed ok although I had to run make zImage twice:

the first time it ended with :
"successfuk try re-making (ignore the error that follows)
exit 1
make : .... [..depend] error1"

so entered :make zImage again :
took a long time  and seemed to complete ok.

- made a boot disk  :
dd if=zImage of=/dev/fd0
rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/hda1

when I try to boot :
recognizes all devices (hard drive,lp1,
then: linux version 1.3.18
partition check
hda:hda1
VFS: mounted root (msdos filesystem)
there it stops  and the keyboard is locked

any idea ??? thanks for your help
