Hello good people,
Straight down to the point;
Are (...was) running a Slackware (kernel 2.4.29) installation as a webserver.
The server worked just fine, until today when I - in addition to the existing NIC (PCI, 3c905C) - tried to install another NIC (ISA, 3c509B) in order to use the server as a firewall/router.
Fairly simple I thought ..yea right….
First the LILO fails to boot, showing a never ending stream of 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99..
Booted up from Slackware installation cd 1, starter my server manually using “bare.i root=/dev/hda1 noinitrd ro”, system booted up fine except of some errors in the boot-up-lines where modprobe complains:
Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.dep (No such file or directory)
Still, removing the new card will result in a successful boot, as it was the only obvious fail source added recently..
Nope, lilo again start with its 99 99 99 99 streamline.
Anybody have an idea what's wrong?? Suggestion??
