Kernel update not working - kernel panic
« on: October 12, 2004, 07:59:56 PM »
Hello linux team !!!!

I am using REDHAT 9.0, i have downloaded kernel from www.kernel.org (kernel version is 2.6.0) linux-2.6.0.tar.gz. I have done the following steps to update the kernel :-

1) copied linux-2.6.0.tar.gz to  /usr/src

2) next extracted tar -xzf linux-2.4.22.tar.gz to /usr/src directory

3) created a symbolic link  
cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.4.22 /usr/src/linux

4) changed the directory
cd /usr/src/linux

5) now issued the following commands

make xconfig
make  dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install
make bzImage
taken a backup of old kernal (grub.conf)
make install

installation complets and rebooted the system to the new kernel 2.6.0
but the new kernel is giving the following error likes...
...
......
...........
...................

mounting root filesystems
moun:error 19 mounting ext3
pivotroot:pviot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed:2
umount /initrd/proc failed:2
Freein unused kernel memory:232k freed
Kernel Panic:No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel

What is this Error ?? What changes to be done to boot to the New Kernel2.60.

Plz give me steps to do...

Thanks

Sathish.

did you check your grub.conf ..... is it referring to the new kernel path ?

Hi !!
yep.. in grub.conf it is loaded automatically to the new kernel.

in grub.conf itz having new kernel version as well as having old kernel version.

If I select the new kernel... itz not booting..

Hi ,
        I am vivek, i saw ur query regarding kernel compilation.
when u r issuing the cmd
#make xconfig
 this is a graphical config tool in gui mode which internally
making use of Qt.
    check whether Qt is installed r not, by issuing this cmd
#echo $QTDIR
 it should point to the path where it is installed eg: /usr/local/qt-3.1/.
if not u have to install Qt.
           select the kernel development packages which includes Qt also.
The env variable QTDIR will also be set to the path.

bye
vivek
