I recently compiled kernel 2.6.25 and, for some reason it won't boot. the nc output looks normal until i get to "Restarting system." :-(

where and how should i begin my search for the problem behind this?

Well, there's quite a lot of information in the forum. The short version, there's Sylver's SVN repository or my precompiled kernels, see the information on my website.

That's not really my question.
My current kernel is one i compiled myself. 2.6.22 it's been working great for awhile now. The only reason i want to upgrade is so i can get a wireless usb dongle to work with my kuro. i expected this to be a clean upgrade.

$ zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/src/linux/.config
$ make oldconfig
$ make uImage
$ make modules
# make modules_install

unfortunately, somethings wrong. I looked through my logs. Nothing stands out to me.

I'm wondering, what steps should i take to debug this problem?

The vanilla kernel sources won't work, as they can't deal with Buffalo's ext3 byte swap. Use Sylver's SVN repository, or the "melfs" patch and genbako's kurobox patch; plus genbako's, Sylver's or my .config as the basis. Also make sure you have avr_evtd installed and configured. (You can find more information on all this in the forum and wiki.)

I would (shamelessly) recommend to install my kernel first (see http://hvkls.dyndns.org/downloads/docum ... aller.html), not so much because it comes with over 900 modules to time and I could add yours if missing, but because this would also set up avr_evtd and modue-init-tools for you and adjust a few daemon settings. It would give you a working kernel 2.6 and a head-start for your own experiments.

I'm currently running linux 2.6.22-gentoo-r5 which i compiled myself following the instructions found here: http://www.kurobox.com/mwiki/index.php/ ... .6_kernels

Why would the same not work for 2.6.25? What has changed?
