Fatal error when booting.
Using Ubuntu I have compiled and installed the 2.6.11 kernel.
I have been doing this so I can have a basic idea how a kernel works, what the boot up procedure is from looking at Grub and just simply how things work in linux.
It is just my way of finding out more about the system before I start to use the system on a full time basis.
When it comes to booting up I get the boot up screen.
(then a repeating message)
Modprobe:FATAL could not load /lib/modules/2.6.11/modules.dep � no such file or directory.
(I have looked and the modules.dep file is there where it should be)
pivot_root:no such file or directory
/sbin/init:428:Cannot open dev/console:No such file
Kernel panic - Not syncing. Attempting to kill init.
What huge mistake have I made and how can I rectify it so it will work.
I have to say that Linux is a fun OS and I am amazed at what you can do with it, I didn�t realise how open, Open source really is.
My hats off to all who are involved.
