    FC6 kernel upgrade -- boot error

    So I'm trying to up my kernel from to And a strange problem is coming up.

    I've done everything properly (I think!). Compiled the kernel by running, in order, from the source folder:

    make menuconfig
    make modules_install

    Then I copied vmlinux.strip to the /boot folder as linux-, moved in the, config file, created an initrd file, and added the new info to yaboot.conf.

    But when I try loading the new kernel from the boot prompt, I get the following error:

    /pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:3,/boot/vmlinux- No such file or directory

    But the file is clearly there! No typos or anything.

    Has anybody ever come across this before? I'm wondering if there's another file on my hard drive with boot info? Any advice would be appreciated!

    All it needed was a 'ybin'.

    I'm an idiot.
