Slackware 9.1 new kernel compile displays black screen on boot.
I recompiled my Kernel according to the instructions found on this forum: Including the old kernel link in LILO, fortunatly.
now, however, I cannot get any data out of my screen once I get past the lilo prompt into the new kernel, and I have no way of knowing whether this is a total failure or if I simply have no video screen.
(although an attempt to blind login and then order the system to reboot did not succeed: still, that may have been user error.)
also, the original kernel, when booted, feels it neccesary to do a hard drive scan during boot.
any suggestions? running a Cyrix pentium 200, 196 RAM, 384 SWAP, 8 meg ATI vid card.
