Re: 2.6.15 -- unable to open an initial console



Hi,

RE: Patrick's email:

Indeed, I am booting with initrd.
At the last step of the kernel compile:

make O=/myper/usr/src/build-2.6.15.6 modules_install install \
	> ../build-2.6.15.6/make_install.LOG.3 2>&1 &

This "make install" actually invokes
  depmod -ae ...
and also
  [...]/linux-2.6.15.6/arch/x86_64/boot/install.sh

And this install.sh in turn invokes
   /sbin/new-kernel-pkg --mkinitrd --depmod --install $KERNEL_VERSION
which runs
   /sbin/mkinitrd --allow-missing -f /boot/initrd-2.6.15.6.img 2.6.15.6

So here we go, there is mkinitrd. I read the udev instructions, but
still don't get the point. Isn't mkinitrd (-4.2.15-1) supposed to take
care of all the udev business? In other words, which part of the
instructions did you refer to?

Cheers,
Gaspar
