Black Screen after new kernel
I just compiled kernel 126.96.36.199 and got it working.
However, when I start up the computer and it should be going through the boot up procedure, all it has is a black screen. I wait until the harddrive activity led stops, then I "blindly" type in my username and password, and type startx and it goes into kde. So it is still going through the procedure, it just isn't displaying it. I used the old .config from my 2.4.26 kernel and simply opened it with xconfig from the new kernel, so all the graphical options stayed the same. It has framebuffer support enabled by default. I have a geforce video card, so I've tried the riva/geforce driver, and the generic vga 16 color and vesa graphics driver, and none work. I can boot into my old kernel (2.4.26) and it works fine.
When I installed slackware, I set it to be in 1024x768 in 256 color, and it displays the penguin graphic in the upper corner, these options stayed the same with the new kernel because I used the old .config, but it won't display anything.
