Upgrade from Slackware 10.2 to 12.0

Posted 12-31-2007 at 05:47 PM by zzzy

Computer:
HP Pavilion ze4547wm (ze4500 series) laptop with Radeon IGP 340M video card.

Reason for update:
Frequent Firefox crashes with embedded flash content even though system was up to date with patches, and Adobe (ex Macromedia) Flash plugin was latest version. Decided this must be a lib conflict.

Procedure:
Followed the instructions on found in Slack12.0 DVD/upgrade.txt. Uneventful except I was not upgrading from Slack 11.0 as instructions...

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-font-609125/ raises the issue of how do I set, at boot, the resolution of my consoles (tty's); not just during boot, but for afterwards too.

This got me thinking about a chart of the "vga=" codes that are available.

Googling:
"VGA Resolution" Chart
got these 2 useful answers:

1st, thank you to Jeremy & all the Mods, they make this an orderly & productive place to hang out.

Background note: My main way of interacting w/ LQ is through my subscription to the daily "0-reply threads" e-mail. Therefore, my problems arise when I click on an entry in that e-mail & find a closed thread which has no references to its continuation, or, worse, gives the "Invalid Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"...
