|I've got a strange problem with updating from 2.6.7 to 2.6.13. on a G4 (Sawtooth AGP)
I searched a little, but possibly I'm blind.
I compiled kernel 2.6.13-gentoo-r4, it builds up System.map and vmlinux.
I copied them over to /boot as System.map-2.6.13 and vmlinux as kernel-2.6.13.
I configured my yaboot.conf within /etc to match that and "ybin"ed it.
Then I boot...
Well, it boots, recons ati rage,some other things, well looks OK, some ide, USB-Things, and then it warns that no console was found, OK, just a warning, then it tries to add mem by using swap.
Then, it hangs.
It looks, that the boot-sequence was not found, it looks that something like an initrc wouldn't be used so that devices like /dev/hda (I use partition 10, so /dev/hda10) and for example swap (on my system on /dev/hda11) would not be mounted a.s.o.
well, yes , I've emerged udev(073), hotplug, coldplug a.s.o.
To make it realy occult : I used a G4 (quicksilver) with 2.6.13, and, hm, it runs.
but, OK, on that box I upgraded from 2.4 series directly to 2.6.13.
Any hint welcome, pls.
Everything I can do with Windows, I can do better with OSX. Everything I can't do with OSX, I can do better with Linux. So, why not do everything with Linux ?
