Problem installing new kernel on Slack 9.1
I just tried compiling and installing the 2.6.5 kernel as per a guide I found on here. Can't find the post now, it was something like "Newbie Guide to Installing Kernels"
Anyhow, towards the end of the instructions, it says to run "sbin/mkinitrd" but this was not found on my system. I found a command called something like lvm_createinitrd. I tried this and it appeared to work. I then edited and saved lilo.conf to the new kernel, but then when I tried to run "sbin/lilo" it said that it wasn't found either. I rebooted anyway and found that I had an unbootable system.
Any help or suggestions?
