1. try copy /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory
then change options like you want (XkbLayout, XkbVariant...)

create 50-mouse.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, with content
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
(change options like you want)

2. What is your network card model ?

Firstly thanks Cedrik
I make that you say about X11, but did not change anything.

My network card model is " Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI express Gigabit ethernet controller (rev 03)"

realtek is well supported, so it shouldn't be a problem
try looking at .new files and merge it
Code:
find /etc -name "*.new"

Try deleting /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and rebooting.

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.

Thanks you all for reply
I tried netconfig,mouseconfig and remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules but did not change anything

I detect that when run `lsmod` command, I have seen only 5 modules(intel_agp,intel_gtt,agpgard,i2c_i801, i2c_core).Did am I upgrade missing?

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.

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?

Code:
upgradepkg /root/slackware64/a/pkgtools-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware64/a/tar-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware64/a/xz-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware64/a/findutils-*.txz
upgradepkg /root/slackware64/a/glibc-solibs-*.t?z
upgradepkg --install-new /root/slackware64/*/*.t?z
Where did I do wrong/inadequate on upgrade ?
Forgive me for my ignorant.

when you upgraded the kernel did you also upgrade the kernel-modules and kernel-firmware too? Also need both of those to go with the kernel for a newer kernel to work.

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.
