After a clean install, slackware 12 wont boot.
 
Hi all,

my problem is that i can clean install slackware 12.0 on my machine without no errors what-so-ever but it wouldnt boot. it would stay on this lines you would see below. im sorry im new to the world of linux and i need some help if u guys dont mind.

first it would be stuck on this line for a couple of minutes

Quote:

udevd-event[1205]: run_program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
then after sometime it will freeze and wont do anything at all leavin me this line:

Quote:

parport0: PC-style at 0x378, irq 7 [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
haven't experienced any of this at all. before i shifted to slackware 12.0 the machine is running with mandriva 2006.


My machine is running on a P4 2.80 Ghz proc, 512Mb mem, 80gb HDD, on a P4M800 mobo.

i reply would be really appreciated. thnx in advance

Try unplugging hardware. Have you got a printer attached to the parport? It seems to be causing a problem.

i don't.

a wireless-lan card is installed. I'm planning to use a wireless-lan on this box. reinstalled it 3-times now. still the same fuzz. cant get to the login screen.

slackedone 11-27-2007 04:10 AM

any suggestions or guides on what should i do about this? really want this to work :(

*help*

slackedone 11-27-2007 04:17 AM

it went ok now. i mean i logged in but...... i dont have any means of connection. the error is triggered by the wireless pci adapter.

simcox1 11-27-2007 04:22 AM

What is the make and model of the wireless adaptor?

slackedone 11-27-2007 06:18 PM

its a linksys WMP54Gv2 wireless pci adapter.

ok small question. Is this slackware-specific? Could you boot up with a live CD of Ubuntu / vector linux and check if it works there ?

mandriva 2k6 booted up.

The boot up Issue is fixed. I got it all working now.

I have a new problem tho, How can i configure / install a Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter on slackware 12? help please..

duryodhan 11-28-2007 01:36 AM

Is the linksys working in Mandriva ... thats what I wanted to ask ...

clearly the problem is with the adapter .. if you remove it slack boots up .. I am asking whether the same problem exists in other distros too ..

2c- sounds probably an IRQ sharing issue, or an MSI issue. sometimes you can overcome this by using a different PCI slot

if you see anything suggesting you try passing the kernel param 'assign-busses' then so so in lilo.conf append="" line.

you can try copying your slack entry in lilo.conf and using the 'addappend="pci=assign-busses,routeirq nomsi"

It wouldn't hurt to know more about the machine setup too, chipset, lspci -v, lsmod, is MSI supported in your kernel?

If the conflict is arising with IRQ7 (where it hangs visibly but not necessarily the problem) you can disable lp with a kernel parameter 'lp=none'

I'd try creating a few different lilo.conf entries for each combination of kernel parameters, then run /sbin/lilo plug the card back in and see what works.

bioe007, topic starter already mentioned that he has fixed boot up issue.

for your wireless card, check there: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3514712
Most of the steps are also required on Slack.

How did you get it working? It would be nice if you posted the solution so someone searching will get an answer instead of 'The boot up Issue is fixed. I got it all working now.'

Just as a courtesy to anyone searching the problem an answer would be nice to bring it to a close.

I ass-umed the fix was unplugging the card....
