I'm a newbie Linux/Ubuntu user. And I tried to compile a kernel as my Dell Studio 1555 laptop cannot be hibernated due to ATI open source graphic driver bug. So, I had to compile a kernel version 2.6.35-rc6 and apply a patch but before doing that version 2.6.35 came out, so I tried to compile the latter(2.6.35), but completely messed up the compilation process. Therefore, I completely crashed my system. I knew that when I rebooted and this kind of message showed up:
Kernel panic -not syncing: VFS: Unable
So, what I would like to know is that, could this be resuced by booting from a Live CD and tried to get back to the previous Kernel version?
I have attached this PATCH I want to apply, so that people who could determine if the new version had fixed the bug or not.
