New kernel hangs at boot

New kernel hangs at boot

Post by Claudio Lolett » Wed, 25 Aug 1999 04:00:00


I compiled a new kernel on RH6.0 (kernel 2.2.5-15 if  I'm not wrong).
But it hangs at boot when
"Finding module dependencies"
Does anybody know why?
And how to fix it?

Many thanks

I am having exactly the same problem. Someone else posted a remark
that pressing ^C at this point helps, but that obviously isn't a fix. What
I *have* figured out so far is that RedHat's manual contains several
errors and numerous omissions in the section on building kernels:
it appears that they forgot to update the manual before they shipped....

So does anyone know why this happens and how to fix it?



1. new kernel hangs at boot

Could anyone give me any clues or ideas to solve the following

I just upgraded my Pentium PC to Rembrandt, 2.0.10.  Works great,
but no network code.

So I went and got the source, configured, built a new kernel using
source 2.0.21.

When the new kernal is booting, it gets to the following lines and

After this, nothing.

Everything up to this point looks fine.  And as far as I can tell,
the kernels are set up exactly the same.  The lilo.conf lines are
exactly the same (except for the image), rdev reports exactly the
same thing for each one.  The images are in the same directory on
the same disk.

How can I debug this?  Is it hanging on the execution of init?
Any ideas?
