Troubleshooting boot process


Hi All. I have slackware 14 on an old sony vaio with a pentium m processor. When the 3.2.29 smp kernel is booting, I get a long delay here:
Code:
[ 20.632080] [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20080730 for 0000:00:02.0 on minor 0
It then goes on to boot fine. Can anyone give me a steer on how I trouble shoot this? I'd like to see if I can fix it.

I should add that udev then kills the process and then I get

Code:
[   49.433140] cfg80211: failed to add phy80211 symlink to netdev!

Is well known that i915 drm driver badly interact with the VESA framebuffer & Co.

Just use an normal VGA console at boot. I.e., using in your /etc/lilo.conf :

vga = normal
