I'm running Fedora Core 1, and I've followed the instructions posted by Jeremy (http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/799?PHPSESSID=b6132127e58688fe1ce8f156b6...)
on how to upgrade to the 2.6 kernel 2 times now, and I seem to be leaving out a crucial step. Here is what I do:
1)Download the kernel sources
2)unzip them, then run "make xconfig" and configure them as necessary
3)make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install, and everything there goes just fine
4)copy the bzImage and the new system.map into the /boot directory, and i add the following lines to the GRUB config file:
"title Vanilla 2.6.0
kernel /bzImage ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi rhgb"
This is just copying the pre-configured parameters for the 2.4.22 kernel that's already there. Unlike the other one, though, I don't have an initrd line because I have no .img for it
When I choose to boot the new kernel, I get a bunch of garbage on the screen that is a messed up version of a Fedora splash screen. This has happened twice, and when I use a kernel RPM things work fine. Any suggestions?
thanks in advance,
