init not found after recompiling kernel


Hello everyone,

I am running Debian woody on my laptop, when I wanted to have acpi support I needed to recompile my kernel. I did it,put the image an system.map in the boot dir, I updated lilo's conf file and
I reboot...
Everything is fine until my init is not found... strange cos /sbin/init exists and i passed it as variable to the kernel and even in lilo's conf file I wrote Init=/sbin/inet.

Can someone help me solve this problem?

Thanks.
Geert.

did you check the spelling and case in the lilo.conf file?

init=/sbin/init?

just a thought...

alot of the times when i see people with this error, usually the source of the problem that i have frequently seen was missing a step in the kernel recompile, ...check this out and see if you did everything properly...

thanks guys
I did not run lilo after editing the config the config file.
Init boots now.

I got a new problem, it stops at this message:

cs: IO port probe 0x800 - 0x8ff:

I think this is a problem with pcmcia, i read somewhere (I don't know where anymore) that you needed to delete this out of a file.
Which file was it?

Thanks for answering my questions that fast. Did not expect this.
Geert.

/etc/pcmcia/config.opts
