    Kernel 2.6.35.4 doesnt work with INIT of Slackware 10.x


    Hello,

    I am a user of slackware. The version is 10 (forget the minor number).
    The previous provided kernel was 2.4.x and current kernel is 2.6.13.4. This
    later works fine, I compiled it myself.

    Last time I tried to compil and install the newer kernel 2.6.35.4
    but it seems not work.
    When rebooting the system the init process stoped at:
    Using /etc/random-seed to initialize /dev/urandom

    I think it is not due to random mecanism but something
    goes wrong AFTER this part of init script.

    The init refuse to go to multiuser mode (this is the next step shown on screen when INIT works fine).

    could someone help me.

    Yes.

    Linux source was decompressed to ~/objdir/

    make mrproper
    make O=~/objdir/ menuconfig (I use old .config )
    make mrproper
    make O=~/objdir/ modules
    make O=~/objdir/ modules_install
    depmod

    kernel copied to /boot/
    grub boot script have been changed (no kernel options passed)
    System.map have been changed
