problem booting FC1 with kernel 2.6.7-1.459



Hi

I am using FC1 with 2.4.26 kernel. I felt like upgrading the FC 1 kernel to 2.6.7. So I downloaded the kernel 2.6.7-1.459 rpm from (http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/RPMS.kernel/) and followed the procedures mentioned in the http://fedoranews.org/jorge/howto/howto01.shtml Below i will give the step by step procedure i followed.

1) downloaded the following rpms: kernel-2.6.7-1.459.i686.rpm, kernel-doc-2.6.7-1.459.noarch.rpm, kernel-sourcecode-2.6.7-1.459.noarch.rpm, kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.101.fedora.i386.rpm, kernel-utils-debuginfo-2.4-9.1.101.fedora.i386.rpm from the arjan's website (http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/RPMS.kernel/)

2) sudo rpm -ivh kernel*.rpm (installed the rpm kernel as mentioned in the fedoranews.org: http://fedoranews.org/jorge/howto/howto01.shtml)

3) sudo mkdir /sys

4) sudo echo "none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0" >> /etc/fstab

5) sudo mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /root

I could find vmlinuz-2.6.7-1.459 and initrd-2.6.7-1.459 in my /boot.

I rebooted my FC1 with the kernel 2.6.7-1.459. It loads the Ext3-fs and frees the unused kernel memory and after that i could see my cursor flashing indefinitely and the booting doesnt proceed. The bleow is some of the lines of my boot

.....
Red Hat nash version 3.5.14 starting
Loading jbd.ko module
Loading ext3.ko module
Mounting /proc filesystem
creating block devices
creating root devices
Mouting root filesystem
kjournald  starting commit interval 5 sec
Ext3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
Freeing unused kernel memory 132k freeb

After freeing the unused kernel memory..my cursor blinks indefinitely and the boot doest proceed.

Any suggestion to rectify this

Regards
Dev
