I went to http://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...=compile+kernel
and followed the instructions verbatim. I was recompiling my kernel from 2.20.2 to 2.6.2 . I am running Debian
All went well until I go to this last part:
Next remove existing initrd.img file:
rm -rf /boot/initrd.x.x.x.img
..And create the new one:
/sbin/mkinitrd /boot/initrd-x.x.x.img x.x.x
The last set of x.x.x is the eqivalent to your new kernel version and it looks to /lib/modules for that version.
When I type in the command /sbin/mkinitrd I get an error message No such file or directory. Even though I could not perform the command below, would it cause debian to not boot:
/sbin/mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.2.img 2.6.2
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
