I compiled a Linux kernel 4.4.2 on my Kali Linux distro with make allyesconfig. When I booted it up it is saying end of kernel panic - not syncing : fatal exception and stopped. What is the problem here?


obviously you have built a kernel with incompatible options. Boot off a CD/DVD/USB for your distro. Then you need to install the default kernel. Ususally Grub keeps a record of your previous kernels and allows you to use a previous one, for just this reason.

If your distro has a rescue option use that to get to the console if you can. Otherwise you will have to use the LIVE media to re-install a working kernel.
