126.96.36.199 and ACPI
hmm, encountered a "problem".
I got my 188.8.131.52 kernel working last night, with help from this forum.
Didn't have acpi support compiled in, but apm. (My laptop is not apm compliant but supports acpi.)
I reinstalled slack10.0 this morning, to have a fresh install to start off with.
extracted 184.108.40.206 and made oldconfig with ACPI support.
after everything was done, I rebooted and it all looked ok.
ps aux showed : kacpid
then it happened:
pc stopped. no message, or anything. Just stopped.
Screen just like I left it, but no cursor blinking.
Hard reboot. (power-off and on)
Same thing, only much faster. (45 sec or so...)
Anyone got a clue, and want to share with me?
