I'm pretty new at slackware (actually I'm generally a semi-newbie at linux administration), and i got into some problems while trying to configure my new slackware installation. (I am trying to install it on my weaker p3-350Mhz)
1. First problem is this :
I cannot configure the mouse. I do not know exactly what type of mouse I have over there although i'm guessing it's a PS/2.
The thing is that when i tried to configure with other mouse configurations (like serial and ms) , the box just hung after gpm loads.
When i'm using the PS/2 setup then it hangs only after starting X
(It loads KDE and all, and then after everything loads, including the "tip" window, everything just hangs)
2. Second problem I have is with the LILO. After installing it, when the computer boots I get something like :
"L 01 01 01"
and it just keeps writing 01's from time to time.
I am not sure if it has anything to do with it, but i have some suspicion in the fact that the HD is a "primary slave" while the CD is the master (I know, wierd-o hardware configuration. Thats how i got the computer and i dont wanna mess with that as I know it worked with windows).
So susequentially the linux system is on /dev/hdb1 and not as the default.
Anyway, I'm a bit puzzled here... Please rescue me from fleeing into RH's arms
Thanks in advance
