fedora dual kernel boot error


fedora core2 (upgraded from core 1) running on EPIA ME 10000.
cd /usr/src
tar -xvjpf ~/linux-2.4.26.tar.bz2
mv /usr/src/linux-2.4.26 /usr/src/linux-2.4.26-epia1

cd linux-2.4.26-epia1
gzip -dc ~/patch-2.4.26-epia1.gz|patch -p1
gzip -dc ~/patch-2.4.26-epia2.gz|patch -p1 -Rf

make oldconfig

make menuconfig
make dep , make , make modules, make modules_install, make install, reboot then Kernel panic : no init found.

grub.conf is:

titile Fedora Core (2.4.26)
root (hd0,0)
kernel .vmlinuz-2.4.26 ro root=LABEL=/ vga=0x317 rhgb
initrd /initrd-2.4.26.img
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
root (hd0,0)

initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img

my /boot has:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun 29 11:30 boot.txt

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1203105 Jun 29 10:29 vmlinuz-2.4.26

titile Fedora Core (2.4.26)
root (hd0,0)
kernel
.vmlinuz-2.4.26 ro root=LABEL=/ vga=0x317 rhgb
initrd /initrd-2.4.26.img


should it not read as

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.26 ro root=LABEL=/ vga=0x317 rhgb

/ instead of . -- is that the problem? Typo in your grub.conf or typo on your post?

may be a typo again ....

you are missing the /boot

that is

kernel /boot/vmlinuz...
