There shouldn't be incompatibilities with the newer kernel.

I did, after configure my ftp slack to the current:
1-
Code:
# slackpkg update gpg
2-
Code:
 # slackpkg update
3-
Code:
#slackpkg install-new
And then get these errors:

Code:
ERROR - Package not installed! gpg error!

And then totally crazy to crack all i did:

Code:
# slackpkg upgrade-all
And Get:

Code:
You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>.
To download and install that key, run:

	# slackpkg update gpg

You can disable GPG checking too, but it is not a good idea.
To disable GPG, edit slackpkg.conf and change the value of the CHECKGPG
variable to off - you can see an example in the original slackpkg.conf.new
file distributed with slackpkg.

I close the terminal, i try to run the ksnapshot for other thread and get and library error that I solved,but that's results from my failure to upgrade to current.. hehehehe

What could I do now?

Thanks

That is strange, this is the way it should be done. At this point I would restore my backup and try it again, watching if I have overlooked an error.

I'm afraid to shutdown the computer hehehe.. I'm thinking in downgrade to the 13.37 via same ways, it's possible, it's necessary?
My last step corrupted something important to run the system?

When I think about it, it seems that you haven't upgraded at all, so reverting to 13.37 should be possible (in general, a downgrade from -current to 13.37 was possible at least some weeks ago, I have done that and it worked). But since I don't know what exactly happened on your machine I can't say if the system will be in a consistent state afterwards. Restoring your backup would be the better choice just for having a known good system.

It is best to follow the instructions in UPGRADE.TXT at least up to the pkgtools/tar/xz/findutils step. glibc is best upgraded in runlevel 1 just in case. In any event my guess is that the errors may be solved by upgrading slackpkg *first*. I could be wrong, of course, but with major upgrades (stable version to stable version, or stable version to -current) I take the path of least resistance and upgrade the core system tools manually...then let slackpkg sort out the less important stuff.

Recently I came the same route, but choose to uninstall all the applications I had compiled to keep the system clean. Using kernel 3.4.4 and just blacklisted the core kernel and modules.

Look this followup. I messed a bit with util-linux, but, once more, the 1st CDROM worked a treat and I was abble to decompress the package inside my root tree.

Now just waiting for 14, but no rush =]
