I followed all the proper steps to install the kernel.
- installed all the recommended software versions.
- make mrproper
- make oldconfig
- make dep
- make modules
- make install-modules
- make bzImage
the source was installed in /lib/modules/2.4.18/build
the old source is in /usr/src/linux
I can't figure out what is freezing in the boot proccess. How do I find out more information about it? I can still boot up my old kernel, but I can't load kde. I believe it is because I removed all the old modules.
You really may want to install the kernel source in /usr/src/linux. Rename the old one and untar the new one into there. Then you'll want to perform the commands:
make menuconfig (you don't want an old one)
Now cp (copy) the new System.map and image files to the directory in which you are calling at boot eg. /boot
edit boot file as needed (if LILO rerun it by typing /sbin/lilo)
has a great HOW-TO you may want to check out.
