Newly Compiled Linux does not seem to Boot
I installed slackware 9.1 a few days ago. Since then, I have been trying to get the aRts sound system working in KDE. Unfortunatly, when KDE tries to load aRts it reports, "Sound server fatal error: cpu overload, aborting." So, I decided to try reinstalling a newer version of ALSA, but the 2.4 kernel doesn't really support ALSA that well. So, I needed to upgrade the kernel first. I downloaded the newest kernel source 2.6.9 from www kernel org.(I can't post URLs yet, lol) When I compiled the kernel and booted it from lilo, I got a blank screen and no harddrive activity. I compiled using gcc version 3.2.3. The commands I ran were:
I did everything in that order. Could I have failed to include something in the kernel? What information do I need to supply to resolve this? Thanks, Bobby.
