Re: problem compiling kernel

I just tried that. Raid compiled into the kernel instead of modules. No

Compiling md in the kernel is the right approach to boot from raided root
without initrd. You can try this just skipping (deleteing the line in grub
Also done another test:
in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file, replaced root=/dev/mapper/vg00-root by
/dev/sda2. Still crashed : "cannot open root device 'sda2' or unknown
There is another test that I would like to run, but I need help for
this, since I don't know the whole package list:
apt-get purge kernel-building gcc make kernel-utils etc...
then edit my /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out lines that refer to
package directories that are too recent, uncomment old lines referring
to debian sarge packages only, excluding 'testing' etc..
apt-get install kernel-building gcc make kernel-utils etc...
and, from there on, trying to recompile, not newer kernels, but my good
old running kernel 2.6.20-16-386 into a custom version without any sound
options in it.
What I need is the list of all packages that I should purge and
re-install in their former version.
