Hello,

I'm trying to compile and install a new kernel on a Xen VPS and I've not
had any luck with it. Nothing's working so far. For some info, I'm running:

1. A Xen VPS
2. CentOS 5.6
3. Commands being issued upon downloading kernel source: make clean -
make menuconfig - make - make modules_install - make install. I then
reboot, to get the following each time (with various 2.6.x kernels). This is with 2.6.34 (all kernels are vanilla).

Here's the result from my latest attempt:

Any assistance in figuring this out would be of great help.
