    SubjectRe: Can't boot 2.4.17 or 2.5.1 kernel
    You must upgrade the modutils and other related packages.
    Take a look at debian news and see the packages that Bunk had prepared
    to use Debian 2.2 with 2.4.x kernels.
    I think it will solve your problem.

    I am a french guy living in Lille and using/practising Linux for
    6ish years. Please could you Cc me any answer. thanks a lot.

    I had a -long- look in the mailing list archives but couldn't find
    an answer to the following question:

    [Short] I boot 2.2.19 kernels without any problems but can't boot
    any 2.4.17 neither a 2.5.1.

    [Details] I have a PC Packard-Bell imédia6007a
    - AMD Athlon 1.4GHz
    - Motherboard "Explorer" from Packard-Bell
    - Chipset VIA KM133: VT8365A Northbridge (AGP,PCI) and VT686B
    Southbridge (IDE,USB) (BIOS recently upgraded)
    - ATIRadeonVE 32MB
    - Debian GNU/Linux Woody (non-official isos from 20/07/2001) with
    XFree86 upgraded from 4.0.3 to 4.1.0 (xfree86-common,
    xserver-common, xserver-xfree86) for radeon support.

    Firstly, I want a 2.4.x kernel for the sound (alsa), the framebuffer
    and the dri (I'd like to be able to play tuxracer ;o)

    I boot my system with grub and there is no problem for the 2.2.19
    kernel packaged with the woody neither for the lighter one I
    compiled myself from the debian packaged sources.

    However, I hadn't any success booting a 2.4.17 kernel; I hadn't
    tried every possibility but I tried:
    - a 2.4.13 kernel compiled from the "generic" (I mean not the debian
    package, see below) sources.
    - the kernel-image-2.4.17-k7_2.4.17-1_i386.deb debian package.
    - many kernels compiled from kernel-source-2.4.17_2.4.17-1_all.deb
    debian package.
    - a few kernels compiled from the 2.4.17 "generic" sources.
    - a 2.5.1 kernel compiled from the "generic" sources (non patched).

    I tried to compile for Athlon, PentiumPro, 386 -same behavior
    I tried with/out initrd support -same behavior
    I tried "mem=nopentium" boot option related to the radeon -same
    behavior I also tried lilo and boot disks both for grub and lilo ->
    same behavior

    please help ! thanks a million.

    [begin grub output]
    Booting command-list

    root (hd0,0)
    Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.17-k7 root=/dev/hda1 ro
    [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x9b512]
    initrd /boot/initrd.img
    [Linux-initrd @ 0x17cb4000, 0x32c000 bytes]

    Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
    [end grub output]
    and the machine is stucked there...
    It seems to me that grub loads the kernel ok but when grub gives it
    the hand, the problem occurs...
