  1. fail to update new Kernel.

    Hi,all
    I want update my linux kernel from 2.4.20-8(Red Hat 9) to 2.6.15.4 in
    VMware. But i get more errors when i begin to make install (before all
    steps are successful) . errors show below:
    [root@localhost linux]# make install
    CHK include/linux/version.h
    CHK include/linux/compile.h
    CHK usr/initramfs_list
    Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready (#2)
    sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.15.4/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.15.4
    arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot"
    No module BusLogic found for kernel 2.6.15.4
    mkinitrd failed
    make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
    make: *** [install] Error 2

    It's can work OK after I comment "alias scsi_hostadapter BusLogic" in
    /etc/modules.conf.
    But When I reboot system tell me
    "Mounting /proc filesystem
    Creating block devices
    VFS:Cannot open root device "Label=/" or unknown-block(0,0)
    Please append a corrent "root=" boot option
    Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root fs on
    unknown-block(0,0)"

    Thanks for any good advice.
    Regard.

    You need to take quite a few steps (certain software) to upgrade
    from kernel 2.4 -> 2.6 as outlined in Documentation/Changes.

    Easiest would be to install a recent distro coming with kernel
    2.6, Fedora Core 5, RHEL 4 or clones if you want/like Red Hat.

    Good luck
