Going backward to go forward

Going backward to go forward

After problems that I have been experiencing with USB keyboard and mouse and Slack 9.1 bare-i kernel [long story] I decided that in order to go forward, I have to go backward.

Therefore I installed Slack 9.0 which boots and works fine with my USB Keyboard and mouse.

Maybe I should wait for Slack 9.2.

Thanks for all the help.

Perhaps the problem was that Slack 9.1 does not have the usb.i kernel on the CD.
I believe you can use Swaret to upgrade Slack 9.0 to Slack 9.1 if you feel the need :}
