Fresh Install Slack 10 Kernel Ver. Prob.
Just installed Slackware 10. Wiped the drive. Made one swap and one root partition. Tried to keep it simple. Installed all packages except a couple that I felt safe to say were not necessary at all.
Noticed something was wrong when ifconfig reported loopback address only. Saw that modprobe was looking for files under a 2.2.20 path instead of the 2.4.26 path which exists on the new system. Read through the forums a bit, and realized /etc/lilo.conf was set to use image vmlinuz instead of vmlinuz-ide-2.4.26. Changed that and ran /sbin/lilo Rebooted, and still running kernel 2.2.20-idepci according to uname -r By the way, there are no files in /boot with 2.2.20 version number, and 2.4.26 is there. I'm guessing the default vmlinuz image must be of that earlier version. However, I'm having difficulty determining what is calling it.
I can't post copies of much, since I can't get this machine networked yet. Although I've been messing with linux for over a year, I'm still pretty much a newbie at it (mostly Fedora and still somewhat dependent upon the GUI stuff). This is my first experience with Slackware. I'm fairly certain I didn't make any mistakes during the installation. Perhaps I did, or perhaps this is a bug of some sort. Your responses are appreciated.
