Re: upgrading the kernel in debian etch from 2.6.18 to 2.6.29

You might want to do add "--initrd" to the list of arguments to build
the ramdisk, which would load the modules required to mount your
drives and read the files etc. That should solve the problem.

Thanks for getting back to me, but do i make the line look like this :

fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image --initrd  

and then execute :

dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.29_custom.1.0_i386.deb

cd /boot/
mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.29 2.6.29

thanks..for your help !
