Problem with Grub configuration (updated kernel)
At first I think you'd like to see my grub.conf file:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
title Windows XP
I had to compile a new kernel version because I wanted to install the tekram DC315U scsi drivers. So far everything worked fine.
Now I tried to implement the new kernel, named bzImage, which I copied into the /boot directory.
I used the same options as they are used for booting the original kernel 2.4.20-8 and changed only the name of the kernel file from vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 to bzImage.
But when I choose the tekram-option in grub at startup I get an error message, that now boot device could be found.
The original Kernel still works fine.
Is there anything wrong in my grub.conf file? (despite the fact, that I'm using WinXP as default OS :)
I'm going to restart now and will write down the full error message, because I don't have it in mind. I'll post it later.
thanks for any help!
I notice you are using initrd in the other configuration. You may need to create an initrd for you new kernel.
mkinitrd -i initrd-bzImage -k bzImage
Then add it it to your grub file of course
Yes , you will need the initrd to boot into the newly compiled image
You were absolutely right.
I made the init-file, implemented it into grub.conf and now everything is fine!
