Kernel Panic - Can't Boot Into Any Media
I've been using Slackware 10.2 with kernel 2.2.x for a little over a year with no problems. Of course, with version 11.0 out, I decided to upgrade and since it came with kernel 220.127.116.11, why not get the latest and greatest?
Well, kernel compiling is somewhat new to me but I slogged through the process. I downloaded 2.6.19 from kernel.org. I patched it. I used a Slackware config file (2.6.18 I believe) and waited while the computer did its thing.
I never got the new kernel up and running so I called it a night. I turned on my computer today and got "<0> Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!"
Well that sucks. I did leave 18.104.22.168 in LILO, but I got the same kernel panic. I tried to boot up with my Slackware CDs, nothing. LiveCDs, kernel panic. I can't boot into any media; the kernel panic is returned each and every time.
Computer is a laptop about six years old. 1GHz AMD Duron, 258 RAM, DVD-ROM drive. This is, by far, not a fancy setup whatsoever.
