I've read posts on similar woes here, not sure it's all the same,
I've been running linuxppc kernel 2.1.125 with BootX 1.0b6 for several
months on my
7200/90. All's well, except for some problems with inexplicable crashes
and with printing. So,
I thought I'd try the 2.2.x kernel.
But, when I try to boot the new kernel (binary downloaded from linuxppc
or mirror sites), I get
no farther than the line,
"Welcome to Linux. Kernel 2.2.1 booting...."
And then it just sits there.
Tried redownloading the kernel (yes, it's ftp'ed in binary form), but
always the same result.
Tried upgrading BootX to 1.02. Same result. I haven't tried compiling
the kernel myself yet.
Just wondering if there's some obvious thing I'm missing? Is this kernel
only compatible with
release 5 binaries or some such thing?
