this is my first post here in this forum . I was trying to copile a new kernel in my PC. I am using Fedora core 6. I tried to compile linux-126.96.36.199 downloading from internet.
what I did were:
then I reboot my PC and found a new option to chose OS while starting the PC. But if i choose my new kernel I is not booting. It is not getting the files required. I dont know why is this happening. Is there anyone to help me ??
tar -xzvf linux-188.8.131.52.tar.gz
mv ~/linux-184.108.40.206 /usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11
ln -s /usr/src/linux-18.104.22.168 linux
cp /boot/config /usr/src/linux/.config
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-smp
cp System.map /boot/System.map-126.96.36.199-smp
cp .config /boot/config-188.8.131.52-smp
Then edit /etc/lilo.conf and add something like that:
image = /boot/vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-smp
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/hda3
label = Slackware
read-only # Partitions should be mounted read-only for checking
Thank you Road Map for your help. But I dont think there is a lilo.conf in fedora core 6 . Instead there is grub.conf in /boot/GRUB . Anyway I made my change there
when I boot my computer I get the options of the newly compiled compiled kernel as well as the old one.If I chose the option of my new kernel . It starts to load. And for fe seconds I see a lot of words written of that black window and they pass so quickly that I could not read them . But after few seconds the booting suspends as it fails to find some path , i found there some words like ... unable to shift "root" , unable to unmout , etc. Finally it hauls with showing a system panic that all tasks might be killed of . After that nothing happens and system haults for ever until I reboot.
