I'm running Red Hat linux kernels 2.4.20-18.9 and 2.4.20-8. I was trying to configure my 18.9 kernel to add wireless support by installing a few RPMs. When I restarted my computer and booted up the 2.4.20-18.9 kernel with the new packages installed, I got the following error (I believe during the module dependency check):
<0> Kernel Panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler – not syncing
And then my computer locks up. I can boot up kernel 2.4.20-8 but not 18.9. I'm new to linux....it is possible to book kernel 2.4.20-8 but then remove the problematic RPMs from the 18.9 kernel so I can save it? Otherwise, the only way I know how to save things is to reinstall linux.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
