[SOLVED] kernel upgrade woes
I haven't upgraded my kernel in rather a long time, and the distribution (fc6) is EOL'd, so I've been trying to compile a new one. I started with latest stable (22.214.171.124), built and installed it, but booting failed, so I stepped back to 126.96.36.199 as my best guess at the optimal near-match to my current 188.8.131.52-72.fc6.
I used oldconfig with my current config, then:
When booting with this, I get:
make V=1 bzImage
make V=1 modules
sudo make V=1 modules_install
sudo cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-184.108.40.206
sudo cp System.map /boot/System.map-220.127.116.11
sudo /sbin/mkinitrd -f -v /boot/initrd-18.104.22.168.img 22.214.171.124
# add to grub.conf:
title Handrolled (126.96.36.199)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52 ro root=LABEL=/
I'm not sure the ext3 message is relevant - hdd5 is an old disk usually mounted readonly as /old, the boot disk is sda.

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Any suggestions of what to try next, or how to go about diagnosing the problem? I've scanned the config diffs (attached), and can't see an obvious culprit - they are all removals of presumably obsolete variables; I've also checked that the initrd contains the same entries as my current one, and the init script is identical.
