Can u please tell me where would the ATI be used??i did not facwe ny such problems in slackware 10.2 with the 2.4 kernel.
Well you should use a proprietary ATI driver if
your graphics card is ATI. If that is the case, I suggest using the fglrx slackBuilds
. Similarly, if you are using an Nvidia card there are nvidia slackBuilds
for that as well. If you need and install any of these you will have to modify your xorg.conf. If you aren't using a special graphics card like these then you probably don't have to worry about this.
I'm thinking your problem is something to do with your system's power management (ACPI), and perhaps a module is being loaded that shouldn't be. It is generally suggested that you use the generic kernels with an initrd instead of the huge kernel. /boot/README.initrd tells you how to make your initrd. You could also try turning ACPI off (at boot or by unloading it after boot) and see if that has any useful effect.
