partition checking error


I have upgraded my kernel ,so it can support ipv6. but after the computer restarted, the computer died when it displayed "partition checking p1 p2 <" ,what can I do .
I use Redhat8 grub kernel-2.4.19
windows 2000

when I upgraded the kernel I selected the vfat ntfs ext3 support and the other partition support . Is it the problem of grub.conf

thank a lot !!!

well ... let's say the thing is probably too complicated
to handle it in a discussion here if you did what I assume.

I believe (from what you posted) that you recompiled your
kernel, didn't leave the original kernel co-exist but rather
replaced it with your own one and now are facing the
situation that your new kernel doesn't have support for
your actual file system... is that about right?

The way to fix it would be to use a boot-cd or floppy
that has a kernel with support for your file system built-in,
then tell it at the lilo prompt to use your actual root
file system, and recompile your kernel from there ...

Good luck,
Cheers,
Tink

Well ,thanks your replyed Tinkster. the fact is I can't load my system with new kernel ,but I can load my old kernel , if the new kernel can be loaded ,then the older one should be loaded too .

I have recomplied my kernel for about n (N> 10) times ,I just succeed one time , that time I used ext2 file system , after that I used ext3 file system , and select support ext3 ,but the computer always told me EXT3 fs failed , root can't be loaded vfs failed , but when I reinstalled my computer in ext2 file system ,and recompiled the kernel ,the computer tell me partition checking p1 p2 <" and then it died , so I just want to give up.

I upgrade kernel is to support Ipv6 , I use redhat8 2.4.18 system , and download 2.4.19 kernel tarball file , does anyone succedd upgrading kernel with ext3 file system .

Tarball sounds bad in your case, mate.

Another thought ...
if kernel compilations fail, try symlinking
/usr/src/linux to the directory your actual
kernel lives in
if it still fails, run a make clean.
if it still fails, run a make mrproper

Mandy, RH, SuSE, they all use custom kernels,
and the problem your encounter might very well
be rooted there ...

Try to get a newer Kernel Source RPM from
RH...

Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: I had quite some problems with 2.4.19 on 2
machines at work, you might want to grab a 2.4.20
which I found to be quite robust :)
