Description of problem:
I have tried to build a new kernel following instructions for RH 7.1
make xconfig (minor changes)
on two different machines - A Toshiba Techra 8000 laptop and a desktop with
an AMD K6/450 and ASUS P5A-B mother board. The results are the same.
After getting into rc.sysinit and displaying the "press I to enter
interactive mode", the startup hangs on the
"sleep 1" command. If I comment it out, it hangs on the "mount of the proc
I have been trying various things on and off for a month. I even upgraded
the Tecra to
the latest kernel. The one that you guys provided, works... The one I
compiled hangs the same way.
Ok, what am I doing wrong. I have built kernels before on 5.x..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build the kernel per Red Hat directions
2. Reboot and choose the new kernel.
3. It will hang at the point is stated..
Expected Results: It should continue booting
Ok something is funny here. Would you mind attaching your .config file to
this bug so I can have a look at it ?
Created attachment 29434 [details]
My last config file from the K6/450
first of all, you made a SMP k6 kernel... I don't think that is what you
wanted; nor do I know if it actually works
Ok, I found the problem. When I turned SMP off, I fell into an undefined
symbol problem, which I had hit before and caused me to turn it on in the first
place. However, I looked it up on bugzilla and discovered bug 45248 which
described my problem also. I followed the procedure at the end of it and I can
boot up sucessfully.
Please change the doc to state that after changing from SMP to UP or visa versa,
to save the config, do a make mrproper, then restore the config and then a make
