Re: kernel from 1 box to another




It will work, but you have to build a new initrd file. Just (as root) do '/sbin/mkinitrd /boot/initrd-(kernel version).img (kernel version)'. That is because the initrd holds the modules needed to start up, and is different for each system.

thanks for the reply - i did what you suggested but the boot failed with a kernel panic and this was on the console

Creating root device
mkrootdev: label / not found
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 2 mounting ext3

any ideas??

thanks
