RE: kernel recompile

||In the continuing saga of my kernel recompile, I did this:
||  make xconfig
||  make-kpkg clean
||  make-kpkg kernel_image
||  dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.18_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
||Everything seemed to go well. There were no error messages, and I found
||myself with a newly compiled kernel named vmlinuz-2.4.18 in my /boot
||directory. But on attempting to boot, the kernel would instantly crash
||and reboot again, and again, etc, ad nauseum. I could only recover by
||editing GRUB to point back to the old kernel.
||Can't see what I did wrong, other than possibly that my settings somehow
||conflicted. I actually changed very little - I used the stock kernel,
||and just added support for sound, parport, scsi, and my ethernet card.
||Has anyone else had this experience? Can I just use my old kernel and
||somehow get these other things to work by loading modules?

I am guessing from the "I could only recover by editing GRUB" that you did
not rename /lib/modules/version number so that a new modules/version number
could be built by the new kernel. Repeat the process doing this first.
