mandrake linux booting problems (please help!!!)
I think I have badly messed up my mandrake linux kernel. I would like ot retrive the files stored there since ihavent taken a back in sometime. Please Help!
I was trying to get madwifi to install the required driver for my atheros wireless card
Here is hte page I was looking at
and this is what I did
* urpmi gcc cvs sharutils
* cd /usr/src/linux
* make clean; make xconfig
and simply save the file upon entry to .config (the default) and quit, then
* make KERNELRELEASE=$(uname -r) MODULEPATH=/lib/modules/$(uname -r)
* make modules KERNELRELEASE=$(uname -r) MODULEPATH=/lib/modules/$(uname -r)
I think my kernel was 188.8.131.52-12mdk or something like that!
Anyway, my computer has a windows and linux partition. When I boot the computer it refuses to boot linux, also I have an extra option there now saying 268-12 or something like that!
Is all my linux lost now? Is there anyway I can retrieve my files and stuff?
Thanks a lot and hope you are having a good new year (unlike me obviously!)
