    Kernel - ERROR while compile


    Hi, I have completed the process of kernel compiling, reboot the system and when I select de new kernel at grub's menu screen something goes wonrg. The kernel never starts and I get this error (look at the screenshot in attachment).
    I wrote a .txt file with all the command line instructions that I used to compile the kernel from source. Hope you can help me.
    Thanks a lot!

    cd /boot/
    mkinitramfs��o�initrd.img�2.6.33�2.6.33


    #Update the boot loader and reboot the system
    update-grub
    You don't need to do the above steps. make install automatically updates grub menu.

    Try edit grub's menu at boot and add root=/dev/sda1 as boot option. Not sure you'll get a running kernel. If so, just run make install again.
    0 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...
    Until the camel can pass though the eye of the needle.

    Thanks for your help nmset!
    I made this compilation process on a virtual machine (with both vmware & virtualbox). Later I did the exact steps in a real machine. I tested two stable kernels (2.6.32.8 & latest 2.6.33.2). With the first one everything went perfect. But with the second one the compilation was unsuccessful. I got an "error 15: file not found". I supposed that this is some versionīs error because the compilation process is correct. Thanks a lot for your help!
