Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz.old: No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2
i am flowing the slackware kernel forum, i have rename to .old and i have uncomment it
When you posted "too late i already compile 2.6.9", are you still working with 2.4.26 or are you working to get the 2.6.9 kernel to boot?
I have only worked with the 2.4 series of kernels.
With the 2.4.26 kernel, copy the bzImage in /boot, and give it a unique name.
then edit /etc/lilo.conf so that the name given to the kernel is set like the following:
image = /boot/name (this is the name you gave the kernel)
root = /dev/sdb3 (or where ever you have your root partition)
label = make up a name that will show up in the Lilo boot screen
run the command lilo after all this to set the changes in place.
