I have the Redhat 6.0 distribution. It comes with kernel 2.2.5-15.
Several weeks ago, I downloaded and compiled 2.2.14. That worked.
This weekend, I tried to recompile with several changes in the configuration. But now, when I try to boot with the newly compiled kernel, it fails. I use LILO, and it looks like:
LILO boot: linux
or something like that. It never says 'Uncompressing kernel blablabla...' I am using the bzImage file just like I did the first time when it worked.
