I was about to post the same thing and I saw this post.

Mine Thinkpad E430 with i3 cpu running Slackware14 (3.2.29) is having the same problem. Frozen 2-3 times every night. Nothing I could do but reboot. I thought it was because of my computer...

Just use one of the config files provided to start with. Make sure to make an initrd if you use the generic one.
Hi TeXMeX,

I followed your instruction and when I "gpg --search xxxxxxxx", I got these 2 message:

Quote:
gpg: no keyserver known (use option --keyserver)
gpg: keyserver search failed: bad URI
I tried to use the kernel v3.6 and would that cause the problem?

===================================================

Just want to make a note for those it might be helpful. I got the problem fixed by:
#gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 00411886



===================================================

Again, I've got another error:

#gpg --verify linux-$version.tar.sign
gpg: can't open `linux-3.6.tar.sign'
gpg: verify signatures failed: file open error

I just ignored this and go to next step

===================================================

When I built the new kernel,
Quote:
#make -j$cores
there are at least 100 y/n options to choose. Is that normal?

.

Yeah, I fixed it, you also need the .sign file, which I forgot to mention.

What kernel version are you using, and did you use one of the slackware configs ?

Mine version is v3.2.29 and trying to up to v3.6

I don't have my installation medium on hand, so I did:

Quote:
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
If we use the installation disk to copy the config file, there would not be any yes/no questions to answer?

Now I stopped the building kernel because I don't sure the kernel building is correct or not...~!

Yes that's pretty normal as there is a very big gap between the 3.2 and the 3.6 kernels. Instead of using the config file for your running kernel, what don't you download one in /testing from a mirror?

The BIG problems of those questions are, they are NOT understandable for normal people ... Those questions are deep!!!

BTW,where can I find a config file from mirror?

Try one of these configs:

ftp://ftp.slackware.at/slackware64-c...sting-3.6-rc4/

x64 for 64-bit.

Here for a 2.6 kernel. If you feel some questions are hard, just accept the default answer or request help.

EDIT H_TeXMeX_H was faster.

Well. I marked this post "SOLVED" with the approach of upgrading to an upper kernel (3.4, 3.5 or 3.6).

another solution

I have an other approach to solve problem which is a wee bit more simple than upgrading the kernel.

on my x230 box the freshly installed slackware 14 froze between 30 sec and 1 hour after boot. each time the system froze firefox was running and some heavyly flash and script polluted pages were open.

To test if firefox is the problem i installed opera. i considered to deinstall flash but was to lazy on the first try.

since then my system didnt froze anymore even with slackwares original kernel installed. at last in my case not the kernel but firefox was causing the problem.

Just put 14.0 on Zareazon Strata, and had the same freezing problem in X, within an hour of boot. After upgrading to 3.4.14 it now worked for 12 hours without a hitch. Keeping my fingers crossed.

H_TeXMeX_H, is that normal? Do I need to import GPG Key?
