Quick Slackware question

I have slackware installed on a 10 gb hdd on a slow machine. I have a much faster machine waiting for an OS, will i get a kernel panic if i pull the slackware hard drive and place it in the faster machine?

Not as long as it's the same position - hda1 is hda1. Otherwise, you could try editing fstab and then powering down or boot with a bootdisk and edit it after powering up. May be other issues, of course - like I lost framebuffer moving one to an i810 from an nVidia card. Framebuffer and i810 don't get along. Little tweaks like that.

You might get one .. plus, you might get some driver errors and your new hardware might not be identified.

That is because your kernel was built (assuming u built/changed the kernel from the one in the CD) for certain drivers. Unless you selected everything else you didn't need as module, which will be probed and loaded @ load time.

I recommend downloading the latest kernel ->
and compile ur own kernel. See the main page for compilation steps.

Hope this helps.
