Kernel selection problem


Hi,

I have been running slack 9.0 for some months with good results.

I'm now trying to do an installation with kernel "bare.i 2.4.20" on a new build machine and it starts to be tricky.

At booting of the system it comes a lot of information telling me the kernel is wrong and it pass by very quick. (I don't know how to reduce the text speed.)

Anyhow I believe that wrong kernel is used.

Please advise how to proceed with this machine.

The machine is based on a Gigabyte P4 Titan 533 motherboard with an Intel Celeron Processor ( 2GHz, 478 Pin, 128 Cache, 400 MHz FSB)

Best regards
/tungsten

In the mean time I'm trying this:

Doing a complete new installation, removing all old stuff.

At the configuartion part of the installation will I use the latest bare.i kernel that is downloaded from the current Slackware directory.

I have done a floppy.

The question is how I should adress the file at thatpart of the installation?

/tungsten

All right
that idea was not so good.

The screen output text during the booting resided on /var/log/message[s], the latest booting is on the bottom.

U can boot ur old kernel, see /boot for the available kernels.
Modify ur /etc/lilo.conf, add another :

image=...
..
..

for the old kernel, thing should be like it was, supposed u had not overriten the old kernel after compiling..
To make the modification of /etc/lilo.conf take effect do:

# lilo -C -v -v /etc/lilo.conf

Hi linuxJaver,

Thank's for your support. Unfortunately is not working beacuse the machine is rebooting before I come so far in your instruction.

Best regards
