new kernel failure....


Ok, I've tried twice to compile and install a new 2.4.20 kernel for my Dell Latitude LM 133MHz and it appears to have failed on both attempts.

The system reads "Lilo 22.4.2 Loading Linux..." then "BIOS data check successful" and then reboots.... over and over....

I've tried recompiling the kernel for what i thought was minimal, especially without any sort of APM but no help...

by the way, the above is not a typo... it really does read "Lilo 22.4.2" Any clue what's going on?

switch to GRUB

hi!

I started off using LiLo, but after it gave me fits, like yours,
I switched to grub...


I like grub better...


Cheers

Did you copy the new System.map to replace the old one ??

Last time I have same problem and copying the System.map solves it


hope it helps

Yeah lately i've been using "make install" after i "make dep;make bzImage;make modules;make modules_install" instead of copying the kernel and whatnot to the /boot dir. manually... seems to work fine on my desktop.... but the laptop wont cooperate. I cant compile and boot a kernel of my own on that thing at all!

I've tried various lilo options but no luck yet.... i'm gonna make sure the system.map is copied correctly and possibly try a bare-bones kernel configuration and go from there...

any suggestions?

Suck-sess!

Running "make install" after "make modules_install" seems to have done the trick. My lappy is booting the new kernel just fine. I went ahead and copied the system.map over manually just for good measure, but I think "make install" does that anyway.

Thanks for the replies.

...now on to configuring the pcmcia modem....
