/sys not mounting with Kernel 2.6.3-2.1.222

Hello all,

I am using Fedora Core 1. I have upgraded to kernel 2.6.3-2.1.222
While upgrading I noticed the following error messages with doing rpm -ivh kernel-i686.rpm

WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.3-2.1.222smp/kernel/fs/nfsd/nfsd.ko needs unknown symbol locks_remove_posix

/dev/mapper/control: open failed: No such file or directory
Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
Command failed

But the kernel, kernel-smp, and source installed o.k.

After installing the kernels I followed the directions here

Read this guide .. hope it can helps you out ..

Pay attention on the USB part .. adding sys filesystem and some other changes needed to get 2.6.0 running smoothly ..

The unofficial #fedora FAQ

I edited /etc/fstab also:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Also I still cannot get USB or Sound to work at all!

Any help would be appreciated.
