Hello. I'm shig. A Japanese University student.

I tried to compile linux kernel for the first time. I successed to build the new kernel. I installed the lilo boot loader and restarted the sysytem. Then the trouble happened.
(I tried the grub boot loader but the result was same.)

---------------------------------------
(Power ON)
(I chose the new kernel)

.................
BIOS data check successful

(silence)
(!!!reboot!!!)
---------------------------------------

I did commands listed below during the compiling...
#cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.31
#make menuconfig
#make dep
#make clean
#make bzImage
#make install
#make modules
#make modules_install
#mkinitrd /boot/linux-2.4.31.img 2.4.3

I successed to carry out these commands.


I can boot up the older kernel but I cannot the new one. What should I do?

Spec...
-------------------------
VAIO PCG-C1R
CPU:Pentium MMX 266MHz
Mem:128MB

Distribution:Vine 3.1
(The Vine linux is based on the RedHat linux. It contains Japanese local packages.)

Kernel(old):2.4.27 (rpm package)
Kernel(new):2.4.31 (The Linux Kernel Archives)

gcc:3.3.2

lilo:22.5.8

When you say software reset, what exactly do you mean? Does the system just reboot (ie show the BIOS/POST screen)?

I made mistake. The system just REBOOT.


I tried to road the kernel compiled on VAIO on another PC. I successed to road.

There is something wrong with my VAIO. Below is the component of VAIO.

Give me advice, please!
