strange...it seems sane...
well there's one thing that _always_ works...
recompiling your kernel...if you dare ^^
download
kernel-source-2.4.24-noarch-1.tgz

install the source ->
installpkg kernel-source-2.4.24-noarch-1.tgz

then, copy the configuration file over, be absolutuly sure nothing goes wrong at this point...
cp /boot/config-ide-2.4.24 /usr/src/linux/.config

then compile your kernel->
cd /usr/src/linux/
make oldconfig dep clean bzImage modules modules_install

install your kernel image ->
cp System.map /boot/
cat arch/i386/boot/bzImage > /boot/vmlinuz

update lilo ->
lilo

if you do....be careful that you type everything without errors...otherwise you are in danger you have to boot from CD...
sorry...I don't have any other suggestions =(

regards

That's what i was afraid off poison, I prefer to wait the next release of the kernel than compiling the source and maybe something goes wrong :S, I compile kernel 2.6 to slackware and try it 4 times and never obtain my internet or sound to work, that what you suggest is the best way for me I know but i don't want to go trough that, I will wait, and next time that wont happen to me.

My doubt is now, if modules.conf is newer than lib/modules.conf of kernel 2.4.24 what modules does my Box are using right now the one that cames whit 2.4.24 kernel or the one that was whit the old kernel 2.4.23?

root@Marian:/home/marian# ls /var/log/packages/|grep kernel
kernel-headers-2.4.22-i386-1
kernel-ide-2.4.24-i486-1
kernel-modules-2.4.24-i486-1
you seem to have the 2.4.24 modules installed...so it should have upgraded your modules.conf
...
don't be afraid too much of compiling you're first kernel =)
2.6 still isn't mature enough yet in my opinion and there still is some missing stuff...I've changed back to 2.4 because I had problems with my GFX card...
after the 3rd recompile you'll say something like..."damned this is boring..." ^^
the steps I posted above will recreate the original configuration used by the stock 2.4.24 slackware kernel...so you don't have to configure it....and the things that worked before will also work...

root@Marian:/home/marian# ls -l /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 136201 Jan 1 1999 /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep

how can I update it too? does I have to download it again? and install it
To make a file/dir become current u just touch it, like ..
# touch /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep

Dear god thank you all. it works very fine the stuff of

touch /lib/modules/2.4.25/modules.dep

I am so happy now, i reboot my machine and i don't see anymore the stuff of the modules.conf newer I'm so glad of all of you people here helping newbies like me, going on whit slackware. If it wasn't for this forum, and all the good people who help my simple doubts Probably I will give up using slackware, but instead i'm learning to love it with all your good help. Thank you very much, to poison for his advice an for the user who open my eyes showing me that my error was because of the date stuff. I'm so glad whit all of you guys, keep the good working On.
