I have been attempting to upgrade the kernel on my ASUSTEK L3800 laptop, every time I change the settings, i.e getting wireless going, setting up firewire etc every thing seems to go ok until I reboot. then the system hangs at redhat interactive setup init line (or something like that)
the only way I can get it up and running again so far is by doing a complete reinstall, as I don't know how to restore original configuration (which I presume can be done somehow....)
I am using grub bootloader and RH 7.3
I think the chipset is an i845, intel 1.7 GHZ processor, 512mb DDR SDRAM.
if there is any other info that you may want that may be relevent to my problem please let me know.
Have done a fair bit of searchin on RH site, but have not found any thing usefull as yet.
wireless actually works ok as is, just want to update to more current drivers, the card is an Enerasys roamabout (orinocco?), but can't seem to compile the drivers (RH reports errors, have read about this problem before on this site, none of the workarounds seem to fix compile problems..)
err... its been a while, but something on the lines of
do the changes orinoco support etc
copied copied bzimage to /boot renamed to vmlinux-new
edited /boot/grub/grub.conf to have new kernel load
reboot, system hang..
