I'm using SUSE Linux 6.4 with the 2.2.14 Kernel and I tried to install the new 2.4 Kernel on my system. This is what I did: make menuconfig, make dep, make clean, make bzImage, make modules, make modules_install
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz.alex
This is my /etc/lilo.conf:
After re-booting I type "newKernel" and get the messages
Uncompressing Linux....OK, booting the Kernel
Then the screen freezes and nothing happens.
I tried it with lots of different configuration details, but always the same result. The new Kernel does not boot (the old one still does!). Does anyone have an idea what I made wrong?
