Re: Grub/kernel install problem

Hello Charles,

Thank you for the post. I followed your instructions:

copy the .configure back from /root to the top of the source tree

make xconfig #(sometimes I use make oldconfig)

make dep

make clean #(did you forget this by chance?)

make bzImage

make modules

make modules_install

make install

And I got the error below (Any other ideas are welcome.) ...

Well, the devil is in the details, I guess; so youl will have to humor me. ;-)

Did you do a "make mrproper" after you saved your .configure file?

Did you remember the underscore character in "make modules_install"?

Were you root for this process?

Did you remember to make a symbolic link so that /usr/src/linux points to the right place?

What might help (if you'd be willing) is to list all the steps you did and who you were when you did them. That might help me.

Cheers--
Charles
