kernel stops as 'freeing unused kernel memory'
I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 with SuSE 7.2. Originally it had kernel 2.4.10, and I am trying to upgrade to 2.4.20. I tried to copy the configuration as closely as possible from my old kernel (also compiled from source). It builds fine and boots, but it stops at 'Freeing unused kernel memory: 204k' and just sits there. A believe this is the point where it should start going into the init scripts. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
