Hi, I have a problem after one compilation. My computer is a DELL Vostro 200, Intel Core2 Duo CPU E4500 (2.20GHz, 800FSB 2MB L2) with a hard drive: 250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive 7200RPM, 8MB Cache.

I've installed debian etch r0 which had a kernel 2.6.18 and I decided to install a 2.6.26 kernel.

I've done anything right like this tutorial says (, sorry it's in french).

Everething was ok, after compilation, I reboot my computer, and try to go in the new installed kernel. But I get this :

usbhid: v2.6:USB HID core driver (hangs up for a long time here - few minutes)




Check root=bootarg cat /proc/cmdline

or missing modules, devies: cat /proc/modules ls /dev

ALERT! /dev/sdb1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!


BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-4) Built-in shell (ash)

Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.


/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off



Then I'm in the shel model.

I have to sayy that for the installation of the first system debian etch r0, I've disabled the SATA mode in the bios, I put it to RAID, instead of IDE...beacause in IDE mode, at the begining of the installation he don't recognise the dvd.

Can somebody help me pleeeeeease!!!!!
