I just installed Debian on my system, and can boot fine using the kernel from the rescue disk. I tried recompiling my kernel using kernel-package and kernel-source-2.2.22, following the instructions found at http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...nstall.en.html
When I try to boot using the new kernel, it does not take long to fall over on its side. Here's where things start to fall apart:
Checking 'hlt' instruction... OK.
POSIX conformance testing by UNIFIX
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000f2c current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000
*pde = 00000000
and a list of registers, a stack dump, amd a call trace
Code: 8b 45 2c 83 f8 03 ba 01 00 00 00 74 0a 83 ec 80 5b
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In swapper task - not syncing
...then it halts.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening?
