So, I'm attempting to compile and use the 3.6.2 kernel on my Debian 6 VM (running under Windows 7 in VMware Workstation 9). I've already had several hick ups, but I am slowly getting through them but still not there, yet.
So, I'm running the following (after extracting the file into
/usr/src and running the commands via
make defconfig make -j8 make install make modules_install update-initramfs -c -k 3.6.2 update-grub
I forgot to do the
initramfs step, which I found from this link here but I still got the error, which resulted in me finding this link. After this, this part of the error below stopped occurring, but the rest was there:
W: devtmpfs not available, falling back to tmpfs for /dev
Upon the GRUB menu, I edited the root UUID to
/dev/sda1 but it still doesn't find it. I finally followed this link, but still no luck. Any ideas?
