The swap is set in the /etc/fstab file. Nothing to do with make config.

Did you botch your inittab file?

Look, something makes me think you have more than a kernel problem with your installation. I have never seen anyhthing like this string of errors that you have. It's just a new kernel, right? I make new kernels every day, get a missing driver here or there, build them, done. It's not that complicated.

Boot into run level 1 and see if that works.

Your initial kernel still boots ok?

I'm gonna be at the box less frequently for a while - take a little trip and have sporadic access to the net.

Good luck,
Martin

You know, I don't even know anymore. My stock kernel boots fine except it wouldn't compile Nvidia drivers. Since I've always wanted to build my own kernel, I thought why not. This is a new kernel.

How would check if my inittab is OK?
