Slackware 12 in VMware Workstation 6 Issues
I have been a long time reader of the forum but this is my first posting.
I have been quad booting for quite some time and after a while it gets annoying. So I was trying to install Slackware 12 in VMware Workstation 6. The install was successful as was the installation of VMware Tools.
I ran in to problems, however, when I tried to compile my own custom kernel. I have done this many, many time in the past with success. The only difference was this is a VM and before it was my actual laptop.
I looked over all the loaded modules, which ones were being used, as well as what pci hardware was detected. Based off that I went through and gave my best shot for the kernel.
So the first error upon rebooting was
Now the other issue that I keep receiving, which I can't fix through about 8 different tries with the kernel is:
I also made sure scsi/sata support was included as well. I verified my /etc/fstab and lilo conf lists my devices as "sd*" rather than "hd*" since I am using scsi/sata. I'm lost.
Has anyone successfully installed Slack in VMware and upgraded their kernel as well? Perhaps I am missing some hardware drivers in the kernel that are important ...
My host OS is Windows XP and my kernel version is 2.6.22
Any help is appreciated.
What type of Linux you choose? For me I always choose "Other Linux" (Since no option for "Slackware"). I make sure the disk controller is BusLogic BT-946C (a scsi controller).
I did choose other, and then the kernel 2.6 option. And yes I did keep my old kernel which is how I keep booting to retry the kernel complilation.
I used LSI Logic for the scsi controller. Is there a difference between the two. I did include both Bus and LSI logic support in the kernel under the scsi options.
Your output is exactly what my lspci shows except I am using the Intel 100/1000 NIC (e1000)
If that is the case, then you should not be using LSI Logic for SCSI controller. Since we are using the same PCI list, you can take my .config file a try:

I'm going to recreate my VM using Bus Logic or just normal IDE and see if that fixes it.
