Just to check which one of these worked.
I know just before I upgraded to severn I had major aggro getting
stock 2.5/2.6 to boot, but when I built from arjanv's source
everything worked. Bizarrely after I installed this kernel, stock
kernel source compiled and booted.
i'm going down that road right now. if i tried building from stock
source, neither a 2.6.0-test1 nor a 2.6.0-test2 kernel would boot --
they would both freeze at the "Freeing unused kernel memory" line.
downloaded arjan's 2.6.0-test2 kernel source RPM, and built it with
the i386 config file that came with it (which builds eight bazillion
modules, but better safe than sorry). that booted, but i did have
to go back and build in some things that had been modules (USB,
mouse, maybe a couple other things).
right now, i'm in the process of still building with arjan's
source, but discarding as many modules as i can that i *know*
i don't need.
if that still boots, i'll use that working config file on a
stock kernel source tree, and see what happens.
at the very least, i have a working 2.6.0 build that boots,
and i'm grateful for small mercies.
