I can change redhat-release of course but how can ESX or anything else be reading /etc/redhat-release when the root volume is not even mounted yet?The kernel panic is right when root is... [by freethinker]
I'm trying to use a new kernel (2.6.32) on RHEL 5.10 32bit (2.6.18 kernel). The .32 kernel is downloaded from kernel.org not patched by Redhat. I know this is silly, but upgrading to RHEL 6 is not an option to us.
I did make menuconfig; make; make modules; make modules_install; make install; reboot. Then I got a kernel panic. I built 2.6.18 kernel from source, either patched by redhat or not.
I asked to migrate existing CENTOS5-basedEC2 server to the new T2 instance.
I created AMI, but it can't be launched as T2 instance because T2 supports only HVM virtualization.
There are few manuals for converting AMI from PV to HVM (http://www.nixhat.com/2014/01/migrate-aws-pv-to-hvm-instance/, for example); but in order to do it, I need "to implant" HVM kernel into my server.
Relatively new to Linux, so please bear with me. Recently installed Fedora 19, updated, and installed a number of development packages preparatory to installing Oracle XE, which went well. Downloaded VMWare (version 10) and it installed fine.
Problem - when I tried to run it, it complained out missing kernel-headers. Output from uname -r is: 3.10.10-200.fc19.x86_64.
Since when I installed netatalk on Ubuntu server 14.04 I get a kernel panic at boot. I think netatalk is the cause because I can see the word "appletalk" many times in the kernel panic screen. I've also changed both my RAM modules and checked my HDD, CPU and GPU to be sure that the kernel panic was not caused by a hardware failure.
