I upgraded kernel firstly step by step with read UPGRADE.txt.
I did not get any error while upgrade.
After upgrade, I encountered two problem.
1. Keyboard and mouse not working when I start X.I am using xfce as display manager.
2. I cant reach to internet.I cant see my network card in ifconfig command output.
How can I solve these problems?
I already chanced config files with .new files. I am using 64 bit system.These problems does not relevant with 64 bit,does it?
I can install slackware from the rough instead of upgrade but I want to learn slackware
Newer kernels and the older generic (not huge) kernels require initrd. If the previous kernel worked fine and this one does not, it is likely that initrd will solve the problem Read the README.initrd file in the /boot directory. You might as well get used to using/creating it as it will be the norm in future kernels. There are several posts here on LinuxQuestions and elsewhere about initrd. Also, when you read the README.initrd file note that you have to add initrd to lilo.config and re-run lilo per the example.
Did you just upgrade the kernel or did you upgrade everything? The last post in this thread tells how to upgrade to a newer version of slackware. I know it mentions current, but it will work for other versions also. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...urrent-897960/
Sometimes bad upgrades occur and have to do a reinstall of packages

Did I upgrade only kernel? I saw that I should use slackpkg for upgrade, but I did not use slackpkg because I think I learn better with manually upgrade with upgradepkg tool.Am I thing mistake? I did not understand that below commands upgrade only kernel?
Hmm.I did not know I upgraded only kernel. Now I am researching about kernel-modules upgrade and kernel-firmware upgrade.
Can you suggest some links about kernel-modules upgrade and kernel-firmware upgrade?
Thanks you all for helping.
