Hi,

I have configured cross Linux and installed kernel, followed all instructions as per cross-lfs handbook. When I try to boot kernel it doesnt boot automatically, I get a message -
Quote:
Error 8: kernel must be loaded before booting


I can boot it manually from Grub prompt. I didnt create initrd and initramfs.

The grub-pc is installed on / (sdc2). I boot my box with SUSE GrUB, which is installed on MBR of sda.

Here is Menu entry in sda GrUB -
Quote:
title cross-lfs-x86_64
root (hd2,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-clfs-2.6.35 root=/dev/sdc2 ro
boot


I've tried various appends including UUID but it hasn't worked yet.

With linux-2.6.35 there is new option for making multilib-x86_64 kernel, is there any documentation for that in Gentoo Handbook.

Best,

Dave

title says bzImage?
menu says vmlinuz?
what name does the gentoo kernel in the /boot directory have?

bzImage is a gzip format and kernel is compiled that way and later saved as vmlinuz in /boot, that is not an issue. I may have edited the subject line incorrectly, sorry about that. I've edited the subject line for clarity.

This is what I got in /boot
