I tried upgrading my 2.6.3 kernel to an 126.96.36.199 kernel. everything went fine, i copied bzImage and System.map to the /boot directory. When i try to boot the kernel everything just goes fine.
The error i get is the following "warning: unable to open an initial console". I did some searching @ google and found out that it has to be a conf failure in /etc/lilo.conf. I had to set my root partition correct, so I checked my root partition in /etc/lilo.conf but I am 120% sure that i defined it correct cause the other kernel image on the same OS in the same boot directory has the same root partition and that worsk just fine.
Maybe I forgot to compile a needed function in the kernel?...
this are the relevant files in the /boot directory: vmlinuz68 and System.map68. I don't need an initrd image, do I?
this is the relevant part of mine /etc/lilo.conf:
(this lilo is installed on an other partition under mandrake, thats why there is /arch/boot/vmlinuz86
I hope this is enough information
