kernel compile problem


hello... i'm currently running slackware 8.0 with the 2.4.5 kernel. i need to upgrade my kernel to 2.4.17 in order to run wlan-ng. my problem is that i downloaded and unpacked the 2.4.17 source into the dir: /usr/src/linux-2.4.17 and did "make menuconfig".

after selecting all the modules/options i want, i save the configuration and then execute the following commands:

make dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install
make bzImage
make bzlilo

then i change the /usr/src/linux sym link to point to the /usr/src/linux-2.4.17.

when i reboot, i get the "Loading Linux............." but as soon as the next screen should appear my monitor goes blank. i've never really compiled new kernel source before (just my existing source), so what am i missing? any help is appreciated. thanx. :-)

Don't worry about make clean. It's just the order you were doing things. Also you don't HAVE to change the linux symlink, but if you do, change it before you do anything.

Greetings.

I had the same problem when I compiled the 2.4.17 kernel with slackware linux, I made a mistake and left a video option out (forgot what it was).So I just popped in my trusty boot disk, booted with the original 2.4.5, ran liloconfig and set it to the first video option.After that, I rebooted and it started fine.Maybe im just a moron, but it worked for me
