I'm using the 2.6.9 configuration I had working on FC2. I've tried doing
'MAKEDEV console null zero' as suggested by various websites, but to no avail. I've tried it with and without initrd. I'm stuck.
Is there a kernel configuration I'm missing?
Lately I tried compiling my own kernel with minimal modules ,minusing wireles,wan,isdn,etc.
During compilation, all the steps were successfully completed. But when i tried to boot with it,
I also encounter this error :
-unable to open initial console.. I dont know how to proceed anymore..
Have u solved your earlier problem. What did u do to solve it.
Pls enlighten me. thanks...
