Re: Upgrading to linux-22.214.171.124
I ran into a kernel panic problem when installing 2.6.14 as well. If
you're sure that you've compiled the generic IDE drivers and the
filesystem drivers that you're using for your root filesytem into the
kernel, check that "Advanced parition selection" is not compiled at all.
Using menuconfig, this is under:
File systems -> Parition Types -> Advanced partition selection
If it was previously selected, recompile without it and see it you can
boot. If this doesn't work, we'll need more details about the messages
you're getting before the panic.
Let me know if this helped. I'm curious.

I've been trying to install an update from linux-2.4.27-2-k7 to
linux-126.96.36.199. But when I install the kernel package that I built and
reboot to linux-188.8.131.52 it brings up a kernel panic. When I created the
menu config file I made sure that all filesystems where to be installed in
the package and not as modules. I also built the IDE chipset and SCSI into
the package. Nothing has worked so far. I am a BRAND NEW user to linux and
I'm using debian GNU/Linux 3.1. I need detailed info if possible.
