Seems like small lilo config problem...maybe more
Ok, I went 100% Linux a few months ago and I want to compile and use a kernel.
Right now I'm using 2.4.22-xfs that came with the hard drive install of Knoppix.
I downloaded 2.6.5-1. Everything compiles cleanly kernel, modules, etc.
mkinitrd seems to work as it should
the new files I have in /boot are:
and here is a clip of lilo.conf:
I noticed initrd.gz is only in the 160k's and initrd-2.6.5-1.img weighs in over 2.5 megs. Might this be it? Gzip the initrd-2.6.5-1.img?
I'm obviously missing something because when i chouse Linux2.6 at the prompt
1. It takes much longer than usual to reach the BIOS check successful
2. after that....nothing
Any help would be great appreciated.
