lilo and x problem[solved]


My first problem is I just compiled the 2.6.18 kernel and used the slackware config file. I can boot it but only if I manually enter the 'noapic' boot parameter. What can I put in /etc/lilo.conf so I don't have to do this everytime?

Also, I was able to run xorgconfig, but when I startx the screen goes black and I can not get back to a prompt, I have to hit the reset button. Even xorgcfg, the graphical config, locks up in the screen in the same fashion. Any ideas? Had it working with gentoo without problems.

Thank you.

1. In the top section (global) you can add a line

append = "noapic"

or put the above line in the kernel's section

2. Sounds like you have the wrong video driver selected. What kind of card is it? Run xorgconfig again, or manually edit the file, and see if the vesa driver works. "driver" = "vesa"

Thanks - that worked.

I fixed my X too, after installing nvidia drivers it worked.
