Unable to change kernel after installing Suse 9.3 professional
I am trying to change the default kernel that was installed by Suse 9.3 professional. The default kernel is 188.8.131.52-20a. I am changing it to 2.6.9. I downloaded this kernel from www.kernel.org.
I succeeded in completing the build of the new kernel but while booting the system I get the following error message.
Waiting for device /dev/hda2 --- It then goes into a shell and the boot fails.
My steps to build the kernel are as follows:
In the linux-2.6.9 directory:
make xconfig (I used the config file in the /boot directory and loaded that)
copied the System.map file to /boot and called it System.map-2.6.9
copied the bzImage file from arch/i386/boot to /boot and called it vmlinuz-2.6.9
Did the following in /boot directory
/sbin/mkinitrd -k vmlinuz-2.6.9 -i initrd-2.6.9.img -d /etc/fstab
Modified the menu.lst file in /boot/grub appropriately.
When I go to boot it, get that message.
PS: I was able to do the 2.6.10 kernel on the same machine. I even used the .config file from the 2.6.10 kernel.
Any help will be appreciated.
