Kernel 2.6.11 on ubuntu 10.04?!?
I am a kernel n00b and I am trying to compile 2.6.11 on Ubuntu 10.04!!
I am aware that kernel version 2.6.11 is way too old to be installed in Ubuntu 10.04. But I am installing this older version of the kernel since I am trying to learn about Kernel programming by following the book, "Understanding Linux Kernel".
First of all my question is "Is it possible to run Ubuntu 10.04 (or any recent distros) with kernel 2.6.11"?!?,
With Ubuntu 10.04, I have successfully compiled kernel 2.6.11 after applying few patches. I followed "How to compile Linux kernel" guide and got through all the steps except "Creating an initrd image" since update-initramfs complained that 'kernel 2.6.11 is too old for initramfs on i386'. How do I fix this problem?
Without creating initrd image, when I boot kernel 2.6.11, Kernel panics (Please see the attachment).
So please, could someone provide solution to my failures. It would be really greatful!!
Thanks in advance :)
