Hi all, I installed Slackware 14 on a Dell Latitude 6520, and everything seems to work fine except for restarting.
works fine, but
The system seems to shut everything down as expected, but it hangs after "Restarting system":
Broadcast message from root@euler (tty1) (Mon Aug 5 13:34:44 2013):

Google suggested that adding the reboot kernel parameter in lilo.conf can resolve this issue. I tried "apm", "acpi", "bios" and "force", same result.
I've also seen some suggest that using the apm kernel module instead of apci can help, but it appears that apm isn't installed in my kernel. So, before I compile a new kernel I thought I'd double check here. Any other suggestions?
Also, if I do need to compile a new kernel, what's the best way to get the source code? I decided not to include it in the initial install (because, hey, I've never needed it before!). Can I download it via slackpkg, or should I just download the same version from kernel.org?
