Kernel Panic while changing kernels

Post by jmazaredo » 2018/12/04 16:43:34

I tried changing kernel due to my last error on viewtopic.php?f=14&t=68931
using other kernel gives same kernel panic

Kernel panic - not syncin: Attempted to kill init!
Pid: 1,comm: init Not tainted 2.6.32-754.21.el6.i686 #1

That looks like the panic that happens when there is a missing initramfs file for that kernel version or the initrd line is missing from the grub stanza for it. Usually a yum reinstall of that kernel version fixes it by rebuilding it and completing successfully.
