Default Kernel Woes

I compiled 2.4.20 for learning purposes, everything goes well during boot up, except when I am in X and I login in, it gets to MagicDev or whatever its called and freezes. I used the configuration file that was used for compiling 2.4.18-9.8.0 or whatever it is.

Did you compile and install all the modules as well (make modules; make modules-install or something like that)? X is probably trying to load a module, can't find it, and gets lost in the weeds. If you're using an NV card, you'll have to reinstall the NV drivers under the new kernel as well. All kernel modules are stored in a kernel-specific directory.

Cheers,

Yes I compiled the modules. Since it is magic dev there must be a problem with either the floppy or the cdrom of which i have 2 a DVD and CD-RW, listed under /dev/cdrom /dev/cdrom1 respectively. I'll post a copy of my kernel config when i get home. I know that disabling MagicDev will solve the problem but I shouldn't have to.

OK, I did a recompiling again with some modifications, now the system hangs on Red Hat Network.

Update: Ok I did another compiling because each time I find that I have stuff check yes that I don't need, and its back to MagicDev. Do I need to enable scsi support even if I don't have any scsi drives? Is that what is causing it.

I now tried removing MagicDev like they say and now I only can get to yet again The Red Hat Nework_Icon.

Hmmm, the SCSI thing might be an issue. I know with mine it appends "hdc=ide-scsi" to the kernel boot parameters for my CDRW drive. I'd at least build the SCSI stuff as modules. That way it won't bloat up the kernel, but it'll load if it needs it. I think MagicDev is like the Windows auto-insert/auto-mount...but I'd have to check on that to be sure.

Cheers,

OK I enabled scsi, same result. I also enabled IPv6 if that could be the problem.
