This was my first attempt to compile a new kernel. I went from a default
RH 7.2 kernel to 2.4.17. Everything seemed to go fine but.....I have GRUB
as my boot loader and I,m not sure how to edit it. I tried changing just
the kernel numbers [2.4.7-10 to 2.4.17] but it didn't work. This was the
output after a edit and reboot.
filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83 kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.17 ro
root=/dev/hda2 hdd=ide-scsi [linux-bzImage, setup=0xa00,size=0xe5c56]
error 15: file not found
I know that initrd-2.4.17.img was never there or made so edited it out but
it still wont boot. Another question is why does it say I have ext2fs?
Maybe I screwed up in the "make xconfig"
Thanks for any help
