2.6.7-1.469 fails to start init on Fedora Core 1
I have a Fedora Core 1 system running 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl, and I wanted to load a 2.6 kernel onto it and use that instead. So I went and downloaded 2.6.7-1.469, installed it and restarted the system. The 2.6 kernel booted up fine, but once it reached the following line:
Freeing unused kernel memory: 136k
It stopped. The kernel was fully responsive - both Ctrl+Alt+Del and Alt+SysRQ generated responses, but init was never started. I tried with init=/bin/bash2 specified on the commandline - no go. I even went and downloaded kernel 2.6.6-1.436 and tried that instead, and still no go.
Has anybody ever experienced this? I can supply additional information if desired.
