Reboot Problem


Hey all,

So i followed the kernel compile guide for n00bs, and everything seemed to work fine, but now, when i boot and the lilo screen appears, i have my two options, Linux.old, and Slack, as i should, but when i choose "Slack" which is the new kernel (2.4.21) it just immediately reboots. However, i can boot to Linux.old perfectly fine.

btw... this is off of a fresh install of slack 9

thanks in advance for any help on this problem


p.s. DaOne -- GREAT POST

Must have gotten something crucial in the
kernel wrong :} ... compare your configuration
against the existing hardware again.

Cheers,
Tink

What CPU did you chose in your custom
kernel, and what is your cyrix most compatible
to?

Cheers,
Tink

Age-wise, speed-wise or architecture-wise? ;)

I've never come across one of those,
but I'd try pentium for a change.

edit: OK, I've looked into my kernel config
and most certainly there IS a Cyrix III/VIA
support there (Kernel 2.4.21)

Cheers,
Tink
