Weird boot up and shutdown intermittent problems in Slack 10


For some odd reason, ever since I compiled the 2.6.9 kernel and have been using it, at various times when I either shutdown/reboot, or boot back up it just hangs at a black screen. For example, when I try to either reboot or shutdown, I log out of KDE and back into CLI, and do a shutdown -r now, as soon as I hit enter I get a black screen and nothing works except for a hard reboot. At times when I boot up, after choosing Linux 2.6.9 from lilo, it says the usual any computer says before booting into either linux or windows about your bios etc., but when that is done all the linux dmesg stuff that scrolls by until I get to the CLI login prompt never happens, just a black screen with the only way to recover being a hard reboot.
Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it? It never happened with the 2.4.26 kernel, or the 2.6.x kernel on cd #2
It can't be "x" because I am already either closed out of KDE, or not even in it yet.

A good starting point would be to download Slack's 2.6 kernel and run make menuconfig on it, and also make menuconfig on your compiled kernel and see any difference that could be causing that problem. It's a tedious work but maybe you gain perfomance and can fix that problem.

Slack's 2.6 kernel? You mean the one on cd #2? If not then I don't know what you're talking about.
