Unhappy Kernel oops on boot

I just installed Debian on my system, and can boot fine using the kernel from the rescue disk. I tried recompiling my kernel using kernel-package and kernel-source-2.2.22, following the instructions found at .
When I try to boot using the new kernel, it does not take long to fall over on its side. Here's where things start to fall apart:

Checking 'hlt' instruction... OK.
POSIX conformance testing by UNIFIX
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000f2c current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000
*pde = 00000000
Oops: 0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<c0107712>]
EFLAGS: 00010287

and a list of registers, a stack dump, amd a call trace

Code: 8b 45 2c 83 f8 03 ba 01 00 00 00 74 0a 83 ec 80 5b
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In swapper task - not syncing

...then it halts.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

i have no clue what your problem is exactly. i can advise you to recheck the kernel configs. you seem to have missed something out, that is (obviously) vital to your system. look for process accounting options, swap stuff and so. give it a try again
