Re: Kernel 2.6 on Inspiron 6000

I tried to do that but nothing changed.. I mean when installing with 2.6 and once the hdd isn't detected, i go to the shell execute option of the installer, and modporbe ide-disk... I even loaded all modules related to SATA disks existing in /lib/modules/kernel/2.6.X/scsi/sata-xx  (from the cd). After that i returned to the installer and partition task didn't detect hdd... As I've said, i put the 2.4.x i386  one and then I made apt-get install kernel-image2.6.8...i686 but when booting on the last one I have Kernel Panic (I changed in the menu.list /dev/hdax to /dev/sdax and had the same problem)...

hi Derek,<BR>
In fact, I installed via apt-get the kernel image 2.6.8 (for i686) but I have the Kernel Panic error for this image... I changed in the grub boot loader /dev/hdax to /dev/sdax&nbsp; but nothing happened. In fact, can I change from 2.4 with i386 to 2.6 with i686 or not ?&nbsp; The error code is 431 with message indicating that /dev/console can't be found&nbsp; ... I make MAKEDEV console but nothing changed<BR>

In my experience with Debian installs on systems with IDE hdd's, I had to either re-compile my kernel to build in support for the IDE chipset, or call it in /etc/modules or I would get a kernel panic.

You can try putting "ide-disk" in your /etc/modules file and see if it detects properly.  I am unsure of what chipset that is running, but I have an Insp 5160 and I could pass you my .config file if you feel like you want to build a custom 2.6.x Kernel.
