    Problem while compiling new Kernel -2.6.14


    Dear All,

    This is first my first ever mail to USCLug group.
    I am facing problem while I am trying to compile my kernel.
    I have fedora core 4 with 2.6.11-1 kernel version. I have read all the mails in reply to Michael Phoenix., but it didn’t help me to solve my error.
    I am trying to compile it on my Laptop- Sony VGN-B100B
    I have downloaded 2.6.14 kernel source and performed following actions after untaring it.
    1. “make menuconfig” and chose all the defaults.
    2. “make dep”. ( I don’t think it’s necessary though I have done it.)
    3.”make clean”
    4. “make bzImage”
    5. “make modules”
    6. “cp /usr//src/Fedoracore2.6.14/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/newkernel”
    7. “make modules_install”

    After performing these actions I have done changes to grub.conf. The modified grub.conf looks like following.
    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
    # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
    # root (hd0,2)
    # kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
    # initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/hda
    default=1
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd0,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.14.1369_FC4)
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/newkernel ro root=/dev/hda3
    title Other
    rootnoverify (hd0,1)
    chainloader +1

    Then, I save the file, rebooted the machine and entered into new kernel
    I got following messages on screen and it hangs up.(after uncompressing kernel)

    Input:ALPS PS/2 ALPS glide point on iscc0060/seri01

    One more thing, I have formatted my /dev/hda3 with ext3 type.

    Can anyone please tell me where I am going wrong?

    I'm not exactly sure what you are doing wrong but may I ask: Why are you upgrading your kernel?

    Actually, I am not upgrading my kernel. But as a part of my project, I have to make some changes in kernel code and have to recompile it.
    So, as a first step I am compiling it with all default options. If I will succeed, I can put my changes and make it compile again.

    Thanks
