did u have trouble with the harddrive name change? my machine uses ide hd. from what i have read the new driver will change hda to sda. i am just trying to be cautious as this server is in production and i do not have any devel boxes.
it's strange, I went from slack 11 (2.33.3) to 22.214.171.124 and it seems that now only half my ram is being shown in meminfo and top... any ideas at all? i went from the ide2.33.3 to huge-126.96.36.199 to get support for everything
the system has 1gb, it now reports 512 only, when i did the kernel update i did not make any changes to its default configs it came w/ from the slackware mirror, i used installpkg to install it and then removepkg to remove the old kernel, and then i updated lilo etc and initrd
but i'm going manually configure 188.8.131.52 tomorrow and see about enabling himem support, though it's funny that if that's the problem that somehow it supports 512 but not 1gb...
So far, i have been using custom kernel and it worked just fine on my laptop
i used the .config from Slackware and i modified it a little bit
- enable ALSA modules
- Change processor type
- Enable High mem
- several other tweaks
everything is working
