3.7.* Kernel weirdness
Okay, I have tried everything I can think of and looked everywhere on the net but can't find anything on this specific weirdness. I have successfully compiled kernels four or five times now and have not run into any problems just following standard the usual procedure: as root: download kernel into directory /usr/src/linux,
zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/src/linux/.config
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-etc,,,
cp System.map /boot etc
I have not had any problems until kernels 3.7.1 and 3.7.2.
But this is not the REALLY strange thing. I also used Slackpkg to upgrade the kernels to 3.7.1 and, using Grub2, was able to load them all into the menu. If I go to boot, they ALL panic with some message like "VFS: cannot find filesystem for root. or Please set root= to proper parameters."
So, I then installed the 3.2.* kernels from Slackware CD. Updated grub2.cfg. No problems with any of these kernels.
I don't know what to make of it.
