View Full Version : Compiling Custom Kernel

August 25th, 2009, 05:08 PM
Hi I successfully compiled a patched version of Linux Kernel 2.6.31-rc6 on my headless ubuntu server using these two instructions, the first one I used the commands to patch and configure the kernel but then I used the Ubuntu Wiki's compile command to compile it as a debian package.
I installed the packages with no errors and set the system's grub to load the new kernel. Instead what I get is the regular default kernel on boot, the commands
sudo reboot and
sudo shutdown -r now don't work and apache2 doesn't startup on a reboot. How do I get this custom kernel to boot from grub? I tried editing the menu.lst, but with no success. The only thing I can think of it removing the other kernels.

What does your menu.lst look like?
