Unhappy Fedora FC1, 2.6 kernel, stops booting


Hi!

I installed a 2.6.5-Kernel via rpm. The entry in the grub.conf file was
done by the system.

If I try to start the system with the newly installed kernel, it just
stops booting after the "Freeing unused kernel memory: 148k freed"-message.
There are no errors like kernel-panic or something.

What shall I do now?

PS! I've updated all packages req, by reading another faq.

Read over this link and see if you deviated anywhere. http://fedoranews.org/jorge/howto/howto01.shtml

I used it to sucessfully install 2.6.x on my FC1. Hopefully you can still boot into another kernel to make necessary changes to your system.

By the way, FC2 is going to be released on the 17th and will have 2.6 already installed.

Good luck!

Oh yeh... I forgot to mention that kernel 2.6.5 and up won't work (without some kernel tweaking) with Nvidia's current drivers. It may or may not be a problem if you are using the stock drivers from RH... I'm not for sure.
