Install Debian Sarge with Kernel 2.6
 
Hi guys,

I'm trying to install Debian Sarge with kernel 2.6, but no success. I got the Sarge netinstall iso image from www.debian.org, and at the boot prompt I type

Code:

linux26
then the computer starts to boot from the netinstall CD, but after a few seconds it stops with a kernel panic (saying it couldn't find an init or something like that...). If I use the 2.4 kernel there are no problems...

What can I do to install Sarge with kernel 2.6?

Hm, I had the same problems installing Sarge with kernel 2.6. I then installed Sarge with kernel 2.4 and compiled my own kernel 2.6 (look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21)

Hm, is there no other (easier) way? Will this be fixed in the final Sarge release?

I hope so (if there will be a final release... :rolleyes: )

Why not install with 2.4 and then use apt-get command to download/install 2.6 kernel? That is what I did. Piece of cake. ;)

# apt-cache search kernel-image

It will then list what available and choose the latest kernel for your hardware (AMD K6, K7 or Intel i386, i686)

Use this as an example: kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686

# apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686

Then reboot

# init 6

Login and make sure you have the latest version

# uname -r

You're done.
