I am upgrading from 2.6.7-1-386 to 2.6.8 on a Debian system. And when booting up under 2.6.7 it works fine. But when I try to boot up in the new kernel a few lines start scrolling and then I just get a black screen with a blinking cursor at the bottom. I have recompiled over and over again. I read some other forums and I did a "grep BLK on .config" and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_HD_IDE is not set. May this be part of the problem?
Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
