    Compiling the kernel


    Ok here is the command I used in compiling the kernel

    I did a
    make allmodconfig
    make menuconfig //configured all the stuff I want
    make all

    I copied the bzImage to my boot place along with the System.map
    I then did a

    make modules_install

    now when I reboot I get a kernel panic wrong vfs
    Do I need to just recompile kernel, did I do a wrond command.

    also I can never get the frame buffer to work what kernel options do I need configure to get the frame buffer to work.

    thanx

    Hi. Try not to disable the VESA framebuffer. Enable it in the kernel, not as a module. and do it too with the precompiled fonts.
    Also enable in the kernel your choosen FS (Reiserfs, I supose)

    Tip:
    Before recompiling the kernel, uncoment the line
    #export install path /boot
    in the Makefile file in /usr/src/linux-2.4.26

    Than when you do #make install , it will export the vmlinuz, systemmap and .config to the /boot
    But dont forget to rename the original vmlinuz to something like vmlinuzold. Change also the lilo.conf to give the option to load the vmlinuzold and the new recompiled kernel vmlinuz.

    Hope it help!

    You can find framebuffer documentation in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/fb . Some of it may or may not be useful, different video chipsets might require things to be set up differently.
