You are correct, switching back to the default slack kernel results in the same issue (kicking out to init 1).
How I compiled the kernel:
- Downloaded from kernel.org
- Did a cp config-huge-smp-22.214.171.124-smp /usr/src/linux-2.6.22/.config
- Did a make oldconfig and went through the new items...
- Did a maxe xconfig (most of what I took out were drivers, etc. that were not used).
- Did a make
- Did a make modules_install
- Did a cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-custom
- Did a cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.22-custom
- Updated Grub on my Kubuntu system (added the new kernel version and
Good to know that you fix your problem, don't forget to compile the modules before doing make modules_install (make modules)
Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy. Archost.
