boot of new 2.2.9 kernel hangs

boot of new 2.2.9 kernel hangs

Post by Stefan nospamReitshame » Wed, 02 Jun 1999 04:00:00

I downloaded the 2.2.9 source onto my 486, which is currently running RedHat
5.2 (2.0.something).
I did 'make dep', 'make clean', 'make modules', 'make modules_install', and
'make zImage'.
I added a line to lilo.conf and ran 'lilo'.

On reboot, I choose the new kernel.

I see the message "uncompressing.........".
Then I see "Ok, now booting into the kernel".
Then it hangs.

Anyone have any idea why?

Thanks in advance,
- Stefan


1. Help to boot new kernel with grub -delited the old kernel before tried the new one

Can someone help, how to update Grub so I can boot into linux. I
updated the kernel with up2date software on RedHat and followed the
Instructions to delete the old kernel files from /boot and now I can't
boot into anything old or new kernel. What do I do to boot into linux.
And Grub boot loader doesn't let me run any usefull commands. Thank
you. I tried to update Redhat 7.3 so it would let me boot into linux
but that didn't work. Thank you.
