SubjectKernelupgrade / Re: Too many open files error
Hi Alan,

I am not so familiar in programming but I mentioned to put the entry
"console_init();" before the entry "time_init();" in function
at line 1120.
The file main.c looks like (in line 1119 / 1120 / 1121):
1119: sched_init();
1120: console_init();
1121: time_init();

All I got while compiling (I did a make dep ; make clean ; make modules
; make
modules_install ; make zdisk) is a message from make zdisk
"init/main.c: In function `start_kernel´:
init/main.c:1120: too few arguments to function `console_init´ " Then
compilation fails.

I don't know if I placed the statement right in main.c so I like to
please you to
be more specific (that's not a critic, but I need more information).
I also upgraded to 2.2.3 by patching, and the message after rebooting is
the same. I would send you the oops... but I can't see any.
All I noticed was "heavy traffice" on my drives (like a normal bootup)
and after
resetting (that's the only way to restart the machine) I got a
because of umounting uncleanly.
Seems that kernel mounts the filesystems... but after that?

Thank you for your hint anyway, Dietmar
