Compiling the kernel
Ok here is the command I used in compiling the kernel
I did a
make menuconfig //configured all the stuff I want
I copied the bzImage to my boot place along with the System.map
I then did a
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.
OK yes but can someone help me with the frame buffer I can get it working with the 2.4 kernels just not the 2.6 what options do I need the chack as modules and what options as compiled in.
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)
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 :wink:
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.
