Kernel recompiling woes (blank screen)
I recently upgraded my system from Slack 9.1 to 10.0, and ran into some startup errors relating to modules. There were a few things I wanted to change in my kernel anyway, so I thought I'd recompile.
I used what I am 99% sure was the .config file for the kernel Slack 10 installed and was currently running, and changed a couple of things not related to the display (actually, I think all of them were building some things into the kernel that were set to be built as modules). I recompiled, rebooted, and now I get a blank screen after LiLO does its thing. You can tell it's working in the background and Ctrl-Alt-Del will reboot fine, but I have no display. This happened a long time ago when I was trying to recompile, but I don't remember how (if?) I resolved it before, and can't figure out why it's doing that now.
Now I'm stuck on my old kernel which works, but none of the modules will load, I assume since they're built for the new kernel. Any ideas?
