Slackware64 14 on Precision T7500
Hi Community,

I installed Slackware64 14 on machine Dell Optiplex 780 (without any problem), in this moment I try to install Slackware64 14 on Workstation Precision T7500, but after of installed Slackware then I obtain this message:

error couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)

I read about this message, then again I installed but I write
at append lilo, but now I obtained

VFS: Mounted root (ext4 filesystem) readonly on device 8:3.

Please, How I install slackware64 14 on this machine?

Thank you for your time Alchemikos,

Community and Alchemikos,

My problem is:

I installed Slackware64 13.37, and this works fine, but I updated with slackware64-current and the keyboard didn't work. Then I installed Slackware64-14, but I doesn't work, because this system can't load. I couldn't to write nano /etc/fstab, because the system don't load, but when I installed Slackware64-14 I did cfdisk and I put

swap logical 44GB
/ prymary 300GB
/Windows/C prymary 255GB
/Windows/D logical 336GB

I put swap of 44 GB because this machine has 48GB of RAM

Hello mfduqued

Did you format the non swap partitions in ext4?
Have other S.O in side, dual boot?
Or the installation was done on a non master HD?

I saw it when I installed the Slack in a second HD at side windows (master HD) + other windows (slave HD, same that slack) in a old optplex 240 Dell, I boot from DVD till today hehe.

You speak Spanish, so I think it may help:

I think that you may try to install again

The link is in Portuguese, but if I can read something in Spanish the inverse is true too :). I Hope hehe

Really I need sleep, now i see you have wndws in the side as I said.
See in the link the partiotions setting in your case the 300 GB must be a linux partition, and after formated in ext4
