    make install "Fatal : open /boot/vmlinuz.old: no such f


    I just compiled the 2.6.10 kernel following:

    when i do "make install"

    i get this error:

    Added linux*
    Fatal : open /boot/vmlinuz.old: No such file or directory.
    make[1]: *** [Install] error 1
    make: *** [install] error 2

    I added the lines to lilo as shown in the above link.


    Slack 10.0 Does this now mean when i power off lilo is only going to show the option to boot into my new (and probbably unstable) kernel??

    okay, well rename your old kernel image (/boot/vmlinuz probably) to /boot/vmlinuz.old and try again.

    I had

    image = /boot/vmlinuz.old


    image = /vmlinuz.old

    as it says in the guide.
