Re: Compiling Kernel 2.6.0

ok, didnt know that ...

if you have access to your / , have a look at
/var/log/kernel for more info --- maybe there can be found more detailed info what happens

Re: Compiling Kernel 2.6.0

Yeah, search for that exact error message.  People had exactly the same problem using the test kernels.  You didn't compile in something you should have.

there is no difference in 2.6.0 and 2.4.x entries ... they look the same wink ... having a look at the time-stamp, you can say, what entries are from what boot/kernel ... have a look at these .. and the last ones from a boot with your 2.6.0 should be informative for solving your problem

Re: Compiling Kernel 2.6.0

well theres a ton of crap in this file.. i know when to start looking timewise on Jan 2 as thats when i tried but every new entry from then on is the same from a 2.4 boot, i know im overlooking somthing.  But in the boot, it doesnt even get to starting anything.. when the kernel spits out all that random crap at the begining it imediatly sais cannot initiate console, doesnt get into loading any services or mounthing the file system or anything

Re: Compiling Kernel 2.6.0

you forgot to compile in devfs support and for it to come up at boot.

as xentac said there ARE plenty of 2.6 kernel posts that have this error and the solution listed.
