problem upgrading kernel


I just upgraded my kernel from 2.2.16 to 2.4.18 following the guide on linuxdot.org. During the boot process I get 4 fail messages, number 1 and 4 are of course related:

1. mounting local file systems: mount: fs type devpts not supported by kernel

2. Bringing up interface eth0: delaying eth0 initialization

3. Starting nfs lockd: lockdvsc: invalid argument

4. mounting other filesystems: mount: fs type devpts not supported by kernel



My internet connection is working on that box, so I guess eth0 was started at some other point. I went through make xconfig again looking for devpts and lockdvsc but could not find anything. I am running RH 7.0 if that helps. How can I fix this?

make xconfig
In Filesystems you need "/dev/pts filesystem for Unix98 PTYs"

Ok, first I said yes for Unix98 pty support in the character devices section, which made /dev/pts filesystem for Unix98 PTYs availabe in the file system section. Next I make dep, make clean, make bzImage, make modules, and make modules_install. On reboot I get all the same error messages again. I followed the guide on http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel....4upgrade.html and upgraded everything mentioned there and still get the errors. I did have the same problems upgrading the 2 pieces mentioned in part 9 of the guide. Please help.

It does not always work with make clean. Try without it.

I removed the directory that I compliled linux 2.4.18 in. Ran tar again, make xconfig, etc. without the make clean and still get those 4 errors. Any suggestions. Thanks.

Hmm, it looks there is still something not set. Could you write all you have selected in "Filesystems"?

Here is the file systems section of the config file. Do I even need the unix98 pty support? Iam not sure what it is, still learning linux. I can put the entire config file in here if that would help. Thanks again.

[y]

I've quoted and edited the areas you really should have set by marking them with a [y] above. Also, do you actually need NFS support? If not, get rid of it or make it a module so it doesn't waste kernel space (so to speak). Others may have a better idear. Feel free to expand upon my suggestions anyone.

Thanks for help, but I still get the four errors on startup. I removed the directory that I compliled linux 2.4.18 in. Ran tar again, make xconfig, make dep bzImage modules modules_install. Here is a link to the entire config file.
