Cannot run Kernel 126.96.36.199 on SLES10 SP2.
I am running SLES 10 SP2 with the default Kernel 2.6.16.x.
For testing I would like to use last stable Kernel 188.8.131.52.
I found a tutorial which I used for compiling and setting up the new kernel.
It's here: howtoforge.com<slash>kernel_compilation_suse
It is written for SLES 10 SP1 but should also work for SP2. Anyway ...
Basically I took the original .config file of kernel 2.6.16. from /boot and used it to build the new kernel. I make no changes to it.
When I boot with new kernel 184.108.40.206 I get errors similar to "no PCI device" and its not possible to enable eth0. Obviously there is something wrong.
My question is: Why is it not sufficient to take the original .config file for a new kernel? Have I missed something?
I would suggest using 'make oldconfig' on the .config file. That will only prompt you for changes not available in the older config file.
