I have my pc with redhat linux 9, kernel 2.4.20-8, with onboard PROMISE PDC20277 FastTrak RAID Controller which is installed while installation of RH 9. Now i have to upgrade the kernel. but when i try to install the rpm 2.4.20-30.9.i386.rpm, its was showing the error
"unable to locate the FastTrak.o module, mkinitrd failred" . So i recompiled the new source kernel
but when i boot after that, its showing kernel panic error.. "the Fasttrak module was compiled for 2.4.20-8 and the presnet kernel is 2.4.20-30.9.
So could any one of you please tell how to compile the new kernel with fasttrak module. i am confused as the previous module was loaded while installation... please give me solution
thanks and regards
