compiling the kernel on redhat 7.2

compiling the kernel on redhat 7.2

Post by Senator Palpati » Tue, 20 Nov 2001 22:26:04

I am trying to re-compile the kernel on version redhat 7.2 with some problems.
It recompiles ok, but when I go to boot up, the system hangs. It hangs at the
point where it prints on the screen something like: cpu 0: slices 0.....

I am using an HP pavilion pentium 4 computer. Any thoughts?


1. Problems compiling RedHat 7.2 with new kernel

I have installed Redhat 7.2 without any problems. Afterwards, I try to
install kernel 2.4.17 following these steps:

cd /usr/src
rm -f linux-2.4
gzip -cd linux-2.4.17.tar.gz | tar xfv -
mv linux linux-2.4.17
ln -s linux-2.4.17 linux
cd linux
make mrproper
make menuconfig
* I select my hardware options with (Y)
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cd arch/i386/boot
* I edit the /etc/lilo.conf
/sbin/installkernel 2.4.17 bzImage /usr/src/linux/

But the options that I have configured through "make menuconfig" as network
card driver don't work because they aren't loaded by the kernel during
startup. Moreover, I have noticed that the kernel options work well when
they are fixed as modules (M), but not when I select (Y) in the config. This
problem doesn't exist with RedHat 7.1.

Somebody has any idea about this problem?

Thanks ins advance,
