I'm running 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 kernel under a Vmware virtual machine.
my VM has 160mb RAM, 6Gb HD, and intel p4 Processor.
i downloaded ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.i686.rpm and also ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.nosrc.rpm and ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.src.rpm.
following the quick insallation guide i run the rpm command.
a process is executed with a progressive bar.
at the end back to the normal cursor.
following up with the guide, i open /boot/grub/grub.conf file and i ADD (because i couldn't find that lines inside that file) the line as written there (just modifing the number of the verion .1 with .10).
the same with sysctl.
i tried the same operation with the 3 kernels.
rebooting, i get the message kernel not found.
note, in the meanwhile i tried to install kernel-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012.i686.rpm
i did the modification following the guide and rebooting i get the error reported in the image attached(kernel panic).
I also followed the "How to modify initrd image", but the init script mentioned in the guide is rather different from the one i get from "initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012.img" file.
so i replaced the old conf files and I inverted the 2 'title' bloks in grub.conf file.
below the grub file.
I hope I've been clear
[root@localhost ~]# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
