Question Problem upgrading to kernel 2.4.7


Hi,

I've compiled the new kernel using gcc 3.0 (bad idea I know, but I presume if it compiles ok it should work ok?) When I reboot using the new kernel, I get the error messages:
Error: unable to open initial console.
No init found, try passing init= option to kernel.
I know that this is usually the result of passing the wrong partition to the kernel loader (loadlin in my case) but since I already had the default kernel booting ok, I don't see how this could be the problem. Passing init=/sbin/init and init=/bin/bash to loadlin didn't help either.

I'm using Slackware 8 and booting from a DOS partition.

I'd be really grateful for any help.

Alex
