can't seem to boot up 2.6.x anymore though my original does


i tried to edit and install new modules and lost patience.. it seems it's not the best way to just edit some file.h and file.c in your kernel directory and do a make modules && make modules_install
my kernel was broken after that.. it said something about my root partition and that it was bad block and that i have to run with e2fck -b 8193 or something ? (problem is now i can't reproduce the error anymore, i installed 2.6.12.5 from my before the modulestupidity oldconfig that DID work though it hangs on the same point though now everything locks up hard without an error message

Code:
IP: routing cache hash table of 8192 buckets, 64Kbytes TCP: Hash tables configured (established 262144 bind 65536) Linux IP multicast router 0.06 plus PIM-SM NET4: Unix domain sockets 1.0/SMP for Linux NET4.0. kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
though when i boot into 2.4 the next entry will be in dmesg
Code:
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
so i guess it really is something with the filesystem

i know it's a lot to ask but i hope somebody can help me with this..

I think nobody fully understand your problem (there is no answer yet)

What I get is :
- you are able to boot in 2.4 kernel
- you aren't able to boot in 2.6.12.5 kernel and you think it is caused by
a filesystem misconfiguration

You said that you edited some files in the kernel sources, could you try
to configure, compile and install a non-modified kernel in a first step ?

what i did before the problem started:
cd /usr/src/linux
"edited some files for my PalmOne Zire (more explicately. visor.c and visor.h)"
make menuconfig
"some options (modules to be exact) turned on in the kernel. saved the new configuration"
make modules && make modules_install (thus no new total compile of the kernel e.g. make bzImage etc.. etc..)
rebooted and then the problems started. as stated in first mail.
after that i did a full kernel compile as I usually do, with my old config from my earlier working 2.6.12.3 and compiled it as i usually do

though after a few futile efforts with 2.6.12.3 i tried with 2.6.12.5 after a make mrproper in 2.6.12.3 and deleting the 2.6.12.3 map (and ofcourse edited lilo.cond en re-run /sbin/lilo for the 2.6.12.5 without any irregular error messages)but now the kernel did boot up seemingly till that point where i got the message that something was wrong and i would have to into maintenance mode to fix it etc etc. but now without the error message and a free hard lockup.

and why i ask the question is because i can't fix it ofcourse and the 2.4.29 kernel works perfectly fine?! :S

So I guess it's a problem caused by some problematic module or lilo has lost it somehow i'm not sure...

When you attempt to boot in 2.6.12.5 and get a lockup, the last log you
see on the screen is the firs log you posted Is that right ?

I see something about smp in your log, have you a dual processor system ?

no not really thanks for thinking with me, but i have k7 though is that smp really multiprocessor? it was an old 2.6.12.2 working .config file so i guess that couldn't be the problem.. but i'm open for anything.

I have a k7 too (athlon xp 2500 barton) but I haven't
"Unix domain sockets 1.0/SMP for Linux NET4.0" logged
at boot... (although I enabled Unix domain sockets in config)

Feel free to send me your .config file by email and the output
of /sbin/lspci -vv if you want, as for the time I haven't any
productive idea
