Custom Kernel Won't Boot!?!?1
ARGH! I read the success story here about the guy who got his radeon to work with opengl. It sounded believeable, so i went ahead and followed step one. Recompile the kernel. I don't have to make any changes, so i didnt.
I followed the tut here
and now i have myself a wonderful little custom kernel. 2.4.20-8martinman
I go to restart, choose my kernel from the GRUB boot menu...scrolling, scrolling...BAM! a big, fat, ugly fatal error that locks up the system:
Anyways, this is REALLY holding me up, as there is NO reason why it shouldn't boot. I checked my grub.conf file and the entry for my new kernel is the exact same as the others, only with different initrd .img names and such.
Here's the excerpt from my grub.cong file.
you could try to use root=/dev/hd?? where hd?? is the partition, like /dev/hda1 or whatever you have the filesystem on.
I would expect there are going to be other problems as well. You must correctly configure your kernel, you probably ended up using a default config file. maybe you could try using this..
I can't help but wonder why we would think that if nothing needs to be changed in the config, how is it going to fix anything?
