i dont know if you fixed this yet but i had a similar issue, everything plays fine, no errors, just no sound. Anyway for me i installed aumix ...
in xmms's preferences --> Audio I/O --> output --> ALSA 1.2.X selected..
--- click configure:
"use software volume control" was not checked
i ran aumix and the master volume was OFF grrr what a pain... anyway that fixed it

Kernel compile error

When i use this guide i get the error:
/sbin/init: 432 : cannot open dev/console: No such file.

I have tryed other 2.6 kernels ver. but i still get the same error. Has any one got a ideer what the problem is? The 2.6 kernel works when i use fedora (core 4), but not debian.

Thanks,
Christian

I installed 2.6.8-2-686 through apt-get. When I restarted, it hangs up on thse last 3 lines:

Code:
pivot_root: no such file or directory
/bin/init: 432: can not open dev/console: no such file
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
Why is this?

It ran fine on my laptop, but not on my desktop.

I have found a way to get the 2.6 kernel without a kernel panic...i just installed ubuntu, it has a debian base and works verry good, plus it has the new kernel.

I just ordered Debian 64 from OSDisc.com for my new 64bit mobo & proc. Hopefully I can get that to go to the 2.6 kernel

Did you follow the sticky and copy over an old config to /usr/src/linux/.config?
You also need to compile in filesystem support instead of modules, or use an initrd.

The location of the config file and the steps needed to use an initrd are in the post that started this thread. The post gives instructions for the "Debian way" of recompiling the kernel using "make-kpkg". It is easier than doing "make bzimage", "make modules", etc. If you follow the steps in the original post, it will work.

well i try nad get this error
Warning: The file include/linux/version.h exists
The contained UTS_VERSION string:
"2.6.8"
does not match expectations:
"2.6.8-new"
I'll try and recover
Warning: You are using the initrd option, that may not
work, depending on your kernel version and architecture,
unless you have applied the initrd cramfs patch to
the kernel, or modified mkinitrd not to use cramfs by
default. The cramfs initrd patch, is included in the
Debian supplied kernel sources. New kernels on most
architectures do work fine.
By default, I assume you know what you are doing, and I
apologize for being so annoying. Should I abort[Ny]?

By now I think the easiest thing to do is deleting the source and starting again by unpacking the source tarball and follow the sticky closely. Have a look at packages needed and install if something is missing.
