Trying to install kernel 2.6.8 under Debian (Sarge) and I've been getting quite an odd message.
I compile the kernel normally and recieve no error messages. Yet when I go to reboot I get a kernel panic stating that something is wrong with my grub configuration (either my partition like (hd0,0) or root fs flag like /dev/sda1 is wrong.
That's all fine, but the thing is that I did this all using deb packages and the grub menu.lst was automatically updated.
I'll give you all a copy of the entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst and an fdisk partition scheme to see if you all can catch anything I missed. Thanks a lot.
Entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst (the 2.4.27-1-386 entries work fine)
apparently there is a critical bug that causes an upgrade to fail. I am searching for a recovery CD now. I am going to attempt to use the Sarge CD disk one as a recovery disk. Not sure if it will work.
I will post what I find.
