I was trying to install the linux-next kernel in my system with the following steps.

  1. Copied the existing configuration file from /boot to the root of source directory
  2. Updated the .config file with make oldconfig
  3. Compiled the modules with fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
  4. Installed the generated deb packages using dpkg -i *.deb.

When booting up the new kernel, it shows Kernel panic message It shows up an error Kernel Offset: disabled. I'm unable to figure out the exact reason for this panic message. Let me know if I have to provide any other logs.
