Question blackscreen during bootup to gui


I have installed slackware 12.1 on ide1 master

Using bios I set which drive to boot from
During slack boot i get slack screen,press enter
shows bios check ok
Screen turns black during boot sequence until login screen in gui appears
I have set slack to boot directly to gui

Hi,

Long time since I experienced something like that bt it might have to do with your frame buffer settings. Have a look at your kernel settings and make sure your video card supports the resolution.

Sorry I can't help more. No access to a shell right now.
