"make clean" caused system freeze, kernel panic on reboot
ok, so I'm getting "kernel panic - no init found", but I'm kinda sure it was my fault. The system was up and running and had been for quite some time. I was tinkering with some old source code and was doing it as root (bad). Anyway, I executed "make clean" and make tried to do some major deletion. The system stopped responding at that point. When I boot (grub) it loads the kernel up to init, of course, and then I get the above error. I am running Fedora Core 1. Booted into "linux rescue" and verified that I did not lose any data (that I can tell), the filesystem looks intact, but obviously there is something important missing. Any ideas where I can start patching things up? I looked at /boot, nothing missing there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
