Hi All,

This is Madhav, Iam looking some solution on the boot up issue Iam facing while booting up the Linux 2.6.34 kernel compiled for X86 processor. Here is some information about my expriment.

Iam intrested to learn linux kernel programming and I took my old PC as an experiment box and installed Federo core as a development environment and downloaded and linux 2.6.34 kernel soruce code tree and compiled with make defconfig for X86 and given make install.

As a result , I was able to see a new entry in boot menu (Grub bootloader).

If I try to boot the new compiled linux kernel it crashes with the following message and call trace.

Swapper Used greatest stack depth: 6576 bytes left
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init
Pid 1, comm: swapper Tainted: G D 2.6.34 #1
Call Trace :

My PC details

i686 processor

Please help me to resolve this boot up problem.
