10.2 major boot problem after pc change


A little background first... I had an old hd I setup w/ 10.2 in a 1.8Ghz machine. Got it running good and updated the way I wanted. I then took the hd and put it into my old p3 machine and tried booting. That was a no go. So I used Slack 10.2 disk 1 to boot w/ and voila booted up. I then proceeded to reconfigure the kernel. Thought there may have been some issues w/ different cpu and other hardware, but after reconfiguring kernel still no boot up. This is the errors that came up during boot ->
unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 88fef0dc
*pde = 00000000
Oops: 0000

(then back to boot)

<< FROZE UP >>

If there is any other info I can provide to help you help me let me know. I swapped this drive w/ another drive and it went into the 1.8gig cpu machine. I reconfigured the kernel in it and booted just fine. The main reason for the switch is hd space and the way I had this hd w/ boot prob. setup.

Help.. Thank you.!.

This suggest probably a bug in Linux kernel. Might wanna report that:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs...ting-bugs.html

What kernel version did you boot ?

Thanks for such a quick response..

Alien - I did run lilo twice.. had to change after first time so fixed and re-ran lilo -v -> showed my new linux Slak10.2, old linux LinuxOld, and winbloze XP. No problems. The first time XP wasn't configured correctly (typo). I will load it up via slack disc and try rerunning lilo again to see if that will help... thanks.!
Tex - It's the stock 2.4.31 kernel and both System.map and bzImage are showing up in there respected directories.

Just to make sure of something. This is the steps I used to re-configure my kernel (let me know if good/bad/easier method).

in ~/linux-2.4.31 directory
1st - make menuconfig
2nd - make dep
3rd - make clean (changed kernel for p3 added/subtr'd modules and such)
4th - make bzImage
5th - make
6th - make install
7th - make modules
8th - make modules_install
9th - cp System.map /boot/System.map (9th & 10th redundant I know)
10th - cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage
11th - lilo -v
All this was done as root and not su'd into root from user. Is there anything that would conflict in kernel going from 1.8Ghz to 800Mhz cpu.? Also, Is there an easier way to switch hd among different pc's.?

Thanks a lot for your help guys.!!

Can you post your lilo.conf, please ... it may be something in there.

Ideally, there should be no problems in switching if no optimization (chipset/cpu specific) is built into the kernel.

I'll have to switch computers and reboot but I'll get the lilo file for you. I have to get my old bookmarks anyways for this updated 10.2 . Also, why would dma be on in p3 pc and off in 1.8 celeron pc.?? Back in a few...

[edit]

Ok, here is my lilo.conf file -->

append="boot= /dev/hda1"
boot = /dev/hda
map = /boot/map
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
prompt
timeout = 1200
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
reset
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
vga = 773
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal
# (took out all xtra vga lines)
# Linux bootable partition config begins
#image = /boot/bzImage30
# root = /dev/hda1
# label = Linux-30 ( ** this was old image for 1.8 cpu ** )
# read-only
image = /boot/bzImage
root = /dev/hda1
label = Slak10.2
read-only
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux
read-only
other = /dev/hdb
label = XP
map-drive = 0x80
to = 0x81
map-drive = 0x81
to = 0x80
# Linux bootable partition config ends

Also, I looked in the /var/log/messages and found this --

May 19 17:25:24 kernel: wlan: 0.8.4.2 (0.9.2)
May 19 17:25:24 kernel: ath_rate_sample: 1.2 (0.9.2)

You didn't respond to my kernel config process (good/bad/easier so I assume it's ok.?.

Hopefully this will help .. thanks again.!!
