I am currently in the throws of building a minimal system which I can use as an MP3 box and play MP3 cd's etc.
It currently has a 2.4.18 kernel, which has little support as it comes from the ALCAS distribution (see http://schapenstal.homeip.net/alcas/
). I am looking to upgrade this kernel and create my own version of this system for my house
Anyway, to my problem. I compiled a kernel from the officical source on a mandrake box i have which is faster than the box i am going to put on it. So i duly got a copy of 2.4.25 from kernel.org and did the usual make xmenuconfg, make dep, make bzImage process. I copied the bzImage from ~/kernels/linux-2.4.25/arch/i386/boot/ to my other box in /boot and added the following lines to my lilo.conf:
.. REST OF LILO ...
image = /boot/bzImage
root = /dev/hda1
label = ALHAVS
then i excuted /sbin/lilo, then rebooted.
Upon selecting ALHAVS it does the following:
Loading ALHAVS ...................................
then it reboots the computer.
Have i mad a fundamental mistake somewhere?
Thanks in advance
