Hello,

I can't boot kernels that I compiled after the fresh installation. During the installation yesterday I used
Code:
make pmac32_defconfig

and wanted to take care of fine tuning the kernel now. However I can't get any kernels running that I compile.

Strange thing is, that even using the config options from the working kernel doesn't work:
Code:
zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/src/linux/.config

The error message I get after choosing one of the 'wrong' kernel in grub2 is:
Code:
done
found display   : /pci@f0000000/NVDA,Parent@10/NVDA,Display-B@1, opening ... done
copying OF device tree ...
Can't allocate initial device-tree chunk

Invalid memory access at   %SRR0: 018a8398   %SRR1: 00023030

To continue booting, type "mac-boot" and press return.
To shut down, type "shut-down" an press return.

ok

I have to admit, I'm pretty new on ppc (2 days :-)), but this seems like there's something wrong with the way the kernel is compiled, right?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Nevermind, it was an issue with grub2. I had to apply a patch to the CVS version to have grub2 working at all. I could boot using yaboot. I guess there's a reason why grub2 is still alpha ;-).
