Trying to upgrade Suse 9.0 to 2.6.2, getting alot of failed items in startup that work fine in 2.4.21 (Suse 9.0 default).
Modprobe seems to fail with error 256 on all calls
LVM fails saying no support. I added raid/lvm support, didn't help
3Com 3c905 Tornado net card - 2.6 does not seem to support it, 2.4 did. 'make menuconfig' does not even show it as an option.
xinetd and quite a few other utilities at level 5 fail on startup.
Can someone post the exact upgrade path suse 9.0 2.4 to 2.6?
Install suse 9.0 by ftp
install suse patches/fixes
Compile 2.6.2 with:
make all (which does make vmlinuz,modules)
Add menu item to grub to point to 2.6.2 kernel
Again. I go back to 2.4, everything is fine.
