I tried to compile a kernal in red hat linux 5.1 with the latest version. I did in this way
1. put the source file in /usr/src 2. tar -xjvf linux-2.6.33.tar.bz2 3. /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make 4 /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make modules_install 5 /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make install
I had checked in /boot/grub/grub.conf the new entry for the latest kernal was found.
I have only / and swap partition and hence it is only /dev/hda1
after rebooting when I am about to enter I get below error
mount:could not find filesystem /dev/root setuproot:moving /dev failed:no such file or directory setuproot:error mounting /proc :no such file or directory setuproot:error mounting /sys :no such file or directory switchroot:mount failed :no such file or directory
