I have to install Linux kernel version 188.8.131.52 on a RHEL 5.4 server because of drive compatibility issues. I follow the RedHat "Building a Custom Kernel" instructions running the following:
$ make mrproper $ make xconfig $ make clean $ make bzImage $ make modules $ make modules_install $ make install
But I get a bunch of warnings like this:
WARNING: No module ehci-hcd found for kernel 184.108.40.206, continuing anyway
When I try to boot this kernel it is unable to mount the hard drive, and kernel panics on startup. As far as I can tell I'm using a standard configuration (I just accept the defaults and save a
.config file). Is there something I'm missing? Thanks.
