I am a complete newbie when it comes to linux, and just the other day, I thought "let's recompile the kernel!" I downloaded kernel 2.8 from www.kernel.org,
compiled, etc, and edited /boot/grub/menu.lst to include the new bzImage. When I rebooted, I got a kernel panic error. My questions are:
a) What went wrong?
b) can I only compile kernel 2.6 with suse 9.1?
P.S. I'll try to get the exact error message when I reboot with the new image again, and post here, thanks.
