kernel recompile error (kernel panic)
I've just tried my first kernel recompile in SuSE 9.1 and got a kernel panic. I downloaded the 2.6.7 sources from and tried to use my old configuration (from 2.4.19), then did:


make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/2.6.7/

Can someone please give me a list of instructions for recompiling a kernel specific to SuSE 9.1, or point out what I might have done wrong?

make sure when you do make menuconfig that you compile the right drivers for your filesystems INTO your kernel not as a module

you might can
make oldconfig, and it will ask you about thethings that are different in the new kernel.

Thanks for the tips... it turned out that I hadn't included reiserfs support, which I needed! make oldconfig was useful in determining what was missing.

this helped to show me what I had to include; It is down the page a little;
