What version Slackware are you running?

My lastlog file is only 287 KByte, but not MByte, on my system. Please verify. The file is a system file is not normally a readable text file. I tcontains the last login for users. Use the "lastlog" command to view the contents. (man lastlog - for more info)

/var/log/lastlog is a 'special' unix file; it is not really as big as reported. There are some posts ... try /var/log/lastlog on google.

about the " Mar 24 01:51:45 Keave modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-1 ", I think ur kernel is compiled with built in sound support for u sound card. try editing /etc/modules.conf stop trying to load the module at startup.

Unfortunately I have not seen Slack 9.0 as yet. I have it ordered, but the last I checked the ISO image files were not available. I assume people are either building their own or getting something somebody else has built.

But to your problem I can only suggest looking at the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file. It would appear from the list, that none are required for a clean boot. So "chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.modules" and reboot. That should stop all modules from loading. If error continues then it is builtin to the kernel and a new kernel will need to be built. Use 755 in the prior command to restore to normal.

On your lastlog file, I think I would verify from a console prompt. Unless of course you have created a few hundred thousand users and they have all logged in at least once. Because all the file contains is the userid, port, date for the last time a user logs in. Again, use the lastlog command to view the contents. If the console prompt verifies that it is 320 MByte, then I suggest running e2fsck to check the file system. All the systems I checked the file is only around 300 Kbytes. I would even think you could delete the file and then "touch /var/log/lastlog" to recreate it. (Empty of course.)

Also, the prior post mentioned the /etc/modules.conf file. I have the file but it is empty so I do not know what it is suppose to do or why it is there.

(Now I remember I think it is for autoloading modules.)

Excalibur I get the iso image from slackware.at. I had try rm lastlog and create it but it still show 320MB its really weird as Iam had only create one user + root. And I got no idea what is 24 01:22:24 Keave kernel: i810 TCO timer init: failed to reset NO_REBOOT flag, reboot disabled by hardware about?

This is a module for Watchdog Timer support for the Intel i8x0 chipsets. Unless you need this support, you can remove support for this in your kernel configuration menu, then recompile. Don't compile it as a module either...just remove it.

Most of the ISOs do not include the kernel source to keep the ISO small enough to fit on a CD. So just download and install the source from one of the FTP mirrors from the /slackware/k directory, then you can recompile your kernel.

I'll chime in too:
bryan@whirlwind:~$ ls -lh /var/log/lastlog
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 285k Mar 23 22:53 /var/log/lastlog

You say that you checked it in properties. What does the above command give you on the command line (in an xterm)? I trust that a whole more than nautilus :-)

keave@keave's:/var/log$ ls -lh lastlog

I just did reinstallation again just to make sure everything is right but I think I am still have all the above problems.
