I'm beginning work on my new PC. Thought I would load -current on it to get started then rebuild it once Slackware 13 hits the streets. The PC is a Dell Optiplex 760 - Core 2 Duo. Thinking I'd experiment, I built with Slackware64 then when that didn't work, I switched to 32-bit but have the same problem. Hope someone can help.
The install goes great, I partition my drive, run the install which moves quickly along. Once complete, lilo goes well (as MBR), I reboot and the trouble begins.
While booting, after the line
ppdev: user space parallel port driver
is displayed, everything pauses. Once paused, I have to press a key in order to get another line displayed. Sometimes a line is displayed every time I press enter, and other times, it will take 20-30 seconds before another line is displayed. Eventually, the system will stop responding all together.
FWIW, I've tried this with different -current builds. Both the June 3rd and with the June 11th.
Any ideas on what could be wrong?
