The newly compiled kernel gets through everything OK including mounting the root file system as read-only EXT3. However, it freezes on the very last line, which says:

If I switch back over to the kernel that came with the distribution, everything boots fine, so I'm assuming the problem lies in the way I configured the kernel.

I ran "find / -name genromfs" which found nothing.

I feel like an idiot for posting this. I'm probably missing something obvious.


you most likely forgot to setup or enable the initrd. You need an initrd
in FC3.

You don't "need" an initrd. The following site explains how to use udev without an initrd.

(make install in the kernel tree will do this automatically for you, IF you enabled it in the configs)
