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.
Cheers Frank

I am not sure your system hanged. Was it meant to start X11
and never did? If you didn't start X11 automatically, the fact you have
no initial may mean you won't have any console at all. Can you try
to log in remotely once the machine should be up?

Your console problem is probably the problem mentionned in this
thread https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-409601.html.

I hope you kept your old kernel around so you can boot on something
while you are fixing things :wink: .
