I think this should go to the kernel forum, but since i'm a newbie i'm posting it here.
I using VL standard 6 on an AMD athlon 1.8 GHz processor,and 256mb ram.i'm using a dual boot system with windows.when I start my computer sometime the system stops loading at several places,
- sometimes it stops before lilo loads,where the bios information is shown
- sometimes after it boots into linux goes on for awhile,then prints some strange code,and some time prints an error
message saying "Kernel Panic!not syncing-attempted to kill init"
- and sometimes tho the computer start,the display wont come on to the monitor
there is one more thing,I recompiled the kernel so i can get my modem working,then later on i found a sound blaster live sound card and plugged it in, since I didnt compile the drivers for the sound card into the kernel,i compiled the drivers seperately.wonder if it has got to do something with the errors.I didnt use the computer for long before the kernel recompile,but if im not mistaken these errors didnt occur before the recompile and i didnt get any problem with the windows system,
but now I cant boot into windows because it is corrupted by a virus,
if you guys have any ideas let me know, thanks in advance.
