At this moment, I am also online:
Code:
Fri Aug 21 22:36:22 CST 2009
and my Tux has no ? in his belly.

Neither does yours, or any other one in this thread.

Mine should always have a ?, because I never cut off my computers,
and am always logged on to LQ.
Try MyLQ, Settings & Options, Edit Options and uncheck Use Invisible Mode.

I didn't understand why that was necessary. I mean, I mounted /dev/sda3 (so my guess was that it includes /proc and /sys). How come that's not so?

In a pinch, you can boot your system from here with a command like:

boot: hugesmp.s root=/dev/hda1 rdinit= ro

In the example above, /dev/hda1 is the / Linux partition.
So all you needed to do was enter "hugesmp.s root=/dev/sda3 rdinit= ro"
and you would have been into your Slackware system.
Probably stupid, but I didn't realize that possibility.
Should have known, because a couple of years ago I've done this with a boot floppy. Which is actually the same thing.
Shame on me.

I have always used that, never had to chroot as Robby posted, and have
always been able to get back into an installed Slackware system.
Ehmmm...

Thank you very much. I'm glad it all worked out.
Still, I wonder, what's the cause for this trouble?
I've read that several people had these problems.

For me it is just My LQ > Edit Options. Though with Invisible Mode checked,
I could still see me online in both the bottom of the Forums page, and see
myself as reading a thread at the bottom of it's page. Maybe that was just
what I could see, and not everyone else.

Thanks Chuck56 for the fix.
