Did you compile the kernel with the EXT 2/3/4 file system loading driver built into the kernel itself or as separate modules?

I've this problem too recently. I first thought that this problem comes from e2fsprogs. Rebuilding e2fsprogs didn't solve the problem. You would check your kernel config, make sure CONFIG_BINFMT_SCRIPT is configured to Y (not M / N).

Code:
...
#
# Executable file formats / Emulations
#
CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF=y
CONFIG_COMPAT_BINFMT_ELF=y
CONFIG_ARCH_BINFMT_ELF_RANDOMIZE_PIE=y
# CONFIG_CORE_DUMP_DEFAULT_ELF_HEADERS is not set
CONFIG_BINFMT_SCRIPT=y
# CONFIG_HAVE_AOUT is not set
CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC=y
...
From kernel help menu:
Quote:
CONFIG_BINFMT_SCRIPT: │
│ │
│ Say Y here if you want to execute interpreted scripts starting with │
│ #! followed by the path to an interpreter. │
│ │
│ You can build this support as a module; however, until that module │
│ gets loaded, you cannot run scripts. Thus, if you want to load this │
│ module from an initramfs, the portion of the initramfs before loading │
│ this module must consist of compiled binaries only. │
│ │
│ Most systems will not boot if you say M or N here. If unsure, say Y.

Hullo Parcox,
You have solved the problem for me.Recompiled kernel with suggested changes and now boots normally. Many thanks

I do really recommend to use, at least as the initial point, configuration file offered directly by Slackware
Btw, it already has CONFIG_BINFMT_SCRIPT option set to yes.
