Problems booting with 2.6.15.2 kernel


Hi guys,
Got a problem booting. I'm running slackware 10.2 current. I compiled the 2.6.15.2 kernel, but haven't been able to boot since. It freezes at this point:
Loading Linux-2.6.15.2
Bios data check successful
Uncompressing Linux.. Ok, booting the kernel
I've tried several times to recompile the old kernel, which was the 2.6.14.5, but I can't get that one to work either. After I finish the compile and do the /sbin/lilo, I get this message:
Warning '/proc/partions does not exist disk scan bypassed.
I'm trying not to reinstall. Has anybody run into this?
Thanks,
tom

What does your lilo.conf look like (the part about the kernel images)?

And I am assuming that the stock 2.6 Slackware kernel did work properly? Or no?

This is my lilo part regarding the kernel
image= /boot/vmlinux-2.6.14.5
root= /dev/sda2
Label= Linux-2.6.14.5
read-only
And yes, the stock kernel did work, so did the 2.6.14.5

That I didn't do. That's probably the problem. I'll try that this afternoon before going to work

The system would not check for udev, module-init-tools, or anything else for that matter, until later on in the boot process. That isn't causing your current problem.

Are you sure that you compiled in framebuffer support so that your kernel is able to output video to your monitor?

"Uncompressing Linux.. Ok, booting the kernel" is the last thing LILO says before actually loading the kernel image, so any output past that point would be the job of the kernel. If you didn't include FB support, you would see nothing until the machine loaded X (assuming you have it set to boot into X).

Thumbs up

I found out what I did I have two computers running Slackware and when I went to compile I used the Athlon processor instead of the Intel pentium 4. One of my computers is an Athlon XP 2800 and the one I'm running now is Pentium 4 2.8. I had an epiphany at work today and just now recompiled with the proper processor enabled and I'm good to go. Thanks everyone for there kind assistance.
