FC4 latest kernel - Kernel Panic

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hey, I have a server running FC4 with 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and I need to update it to the latest kernel ( by downloading and compiling it. I extract the new kernel to /usr/src/kernels/linux- and copy in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/kernel-2.6.11.i686.config and rename it to ".config". I then run make menuconfig, save and I then do: make && make modules && make modules_install && make install && reboot and boot grub into the new kernel. Unfortunately I get stuck at: Code: Red Hat nash version 4.2.15 starting   Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...   No volume groups found   Unable to find volume group "VolGroup00" 0x83 ERROR: /bin/lvm exited abnormally with value 5 !

The old kernel still works fine if I boot into it from grub, but I need the newer one for security reasons. Can anyone help? (HowTos)
