I am trying to recompile the kernel for my SuSe 7.3 box. I can get the
compile to work fine and the new kernel will boot. However, it hangs right
after mounting the root disk. There are no error messages.
I suspect it is a problem with the 'init' process? If I specify the wrong
root drive, the kernel will panic as expected. I can create an 'initrd' as
well, but this does not solve the problem.
The standard SuSe 2.4.14 kernels boot without problems. I am trying to build
a customised 2.4.18 kernel, although I have tried the default configuration
I am not completely familiar with SuSe and it has options to install a 2.2
kernel so I am worried that the version of init might be old. The version of
gcc is also 2.92.3, and the kernel compile seems to use a special version of
One other complication is that I am building this on a sparc64 box while all
the applications are sparc32. But this should not be a real issue as the
SuSe kernels are also sparc64 and I have configured the ELF32 'compatibility
layer' into my customised kernel.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
