SubjectRe: Kernel 2.5.62 "unable to open initial console"
Date
Please check out this thread: "2.5.62 fails to boot, Uncompressing... and then nothing"

You need to enable the console in your .config:

CONFIG_VT=y
CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE=y

See the above thread for more details.

I hope this helps,

Duncan.
