Kernel Compilation + Boot Question
1) When i try to boot into the new installed kernel in GRUB, i get a black screen
2) When i try to boot into the failsafe entry of the new kernel, i get the following error message:
Code: Bad RIP value RIP [<0000000000000000>]_stext+0x7fdff0e010xe0 RSP <ffffffff80644f60> CR2: <0000000000000000> <0>Kernel Panic - not syncing: Aiee. killing interrupt handler
My new GRUB entry has exactly the same parameters, except the actual kernel location and initrd file are at different locations.
I used the follow proceedure to compile my 2.6.20 vanilla kernel.
1. rm /usr/src/linux 2. ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.20/ /usr/src/linux 3. make mrproper 4. cd /usr/src/linux 5. cp /boot/config-126.96.36.199-0.16 .config (188.8.131.52-0.16 is the kernel im currently running) 6. make xconfig (added built in kernel support for my e1000 network card, and core 2 support, and nfs client and nfs root support - all non-modular) 7. make dep 8. make clean 9. make bzImage 10. make modules 11. make modules_install 12. make install 13. *reboot* - and test new kernel option in GRUB
Is there something that i am missing here? Please help! This has been driving me crazy for weeks now! Thanks in advance
