System does not booting after installing new kernel
I installed UbuntuME inside windows and proceeded to compile 126.96.36.199 kernel (UbuntuME had 2.6.24, I think). After a few glitches I managed to compile the kernel and its modules, installed the modules and then the kernel. However, I wasnt able to make the initrd image for the new kernel. I did some research on mkinitrd (which was cited by the article I was referring to all the time) and found that it is only shipped with Fedora. I decided to skip creating the initrd image and my worst fears came true.
I rebooted and the boot failed citing some files missing in the /lib directory. Now I am pretty sure that this is as much of a problem with not having an initrd image for the new kernel as having those files missing. I wish I could post some more information but Im at work right now and do not have my personal laptop along. I do intend to reply to this message sometime in the evening with the details of the actual error.
In the meantime, has anyone encountered this issue ? and if so, what are your suggestions. Any help would be appreciated.
