I've configured and built the kernel, using gcc-2.95, make bzImage and
modules, installed modules under /lib/modules/2.5.68. Everything goes
fine except for a bunch of depmod errors during the 'make
modules_install' which I'm guessing is because the new modules don't
match the running kernel.
I've updated grub to point to the kernel.
When booting, grub seems to find it, uncompress it, then it says 'OK,
booting the kernel' and nothing more. It just hangs. I don't see the
line announcing the kernel version or compiler etc.
Any tips or pointers? I've tried to be quite conservative with the
config... no preempt, no smp, and the basic stuff as builtin rather than
'Try to relax and ENJOY the crisis.'
