Upon booting my new LFS-6.0 system I get:
FATAL: kernel too old
Here's my setup...
Host system (P4 2.8):
slackware10.0 originally kernel 2.4.26 upgraded to 2.6.9
Target system (celeron 400):
slackware 9.1 kernel 2.4.22
Used nALFS with profile 6 to compile and install into a loopback mounted filesystem, but did not compile a kernel or configure grub.
Everything compiled just fine.
Tarred up /mnt/lfs and transferred tarball to target system that had a spare partition (hda4). Mounted /dev/hda4 to /mnt/lfs and extracted tarball. Mounted virtual filesystems per beginning of chapter 6 and chrooted into /mnt/lfs. Compiled and installed kernel 126.96.36.199.
Configured the target systems bootloader (LILO) to boot the 188.8.131.52 kernel on /dev/hda4.
Starts to boot fine but then get the kernel error mentioned above.
Kind of a wierd way of going about it but I wanted to compile it on a faster machine because it would have taken forever on the celeron 400.
I made sure that glibc was configured with the --enable-kernel=2.6.0 option. Is it identifying 184.108.40.206 as being older than 2.6.0. ?
Would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions. I'm having a blast with this...!
