I downloaded the Fedora Core 3 (kernel 2.6.9-1.667) ISO CDs from the
I burn the CDs. I installed the Fedora Core 3 in an Intel Machine. It
was working fine.
Now I want to build the 2.6.6 kernel image. Then I downloaded the kernel
tar file from the following link.
After that I did the following steps.
1. I copied the downloaded tar file to the /usr/src directory.
2. I un tar the downloaded tar file.
3. I changed the owner to ROOT by
#chown -R root:root /usr/src/linux-2.6.6
After this I compiled the kernel by the following steps.
4. #make menuconfig - to creating the config file
5. #make clean
6. #make bzImage
Now I changed the EXTRAVERSION in Makefile
7. #make modules
8. #make modules_install
9. #make install - this will copy the bzImage file to /boot
directory and also updates the
i.e. grub.conf file and copies
System.map file etc.
Every thing goes fine. After rebooting the system through this new
kernel image I got the following error messages and system halted.
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 starting
Enforcing mode requested but no policy loaded. Halting now.
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
I succeeded in building the new kernel image, but un succeeded in
booting from the new image. I tried 2 to 3 times. I got the same error.
What am I doing wrong here? Please advice me with right one.
Thanks in advance.
