Re: problem is compiling FC2 with 2.4.26 kernel

How to recompile a kernel without needing an initrd.

Make sure all of the device drivers you need to mount the root filesystem are built into the kernel and not as modules. At a minimum, this usually means any SCSI driver you need (including the sr_mod, sg, and sd_mod bits) and, probably, the ext3 filesystem (if / is ext3).

Ahh,

Yes, the problem is actually with the initrd image trying to mount the /sys
filesystem. You'll have to make a new initrd image or compile your
kernel such that you don't need an initrd.


Not too sure if the mkinitrd command of FC2 is capable of making an
initrd for a 2.4 kernel but you can give it a shot.
