True, and I can't boot with the hugesmp kernel cause it lacks Math Emulation. and even if i use huge kernel on 12.2 it doesn't boot but gives the error "Error parsing elf" then kernel panics.

And btw the generic kernel is the hugesmp one, right??

Hi,

The generic kernels and the huge kernels are two different animals. With the generic you have too create a initrd or compile the filesystem support into them. The generic do have access to the modules where as the huge has everything compiled.

I thought that you were able to boot the 'pc104' with a usable Slackware. Why are you attempting to boot it with something you know won't install?

Hey,

Slackware versions prior to 12.2 boot with the huge kernel. I can't get 12.2 to boot tho. But I think I started to understand. correct me if am wrong. In the slackware cd, there is a kernel directory which has 3 kernels, "huge.s, hugesmp.s, speakup.s" Those are the ones that don't need initrd. right?

But if there is another generic kernel where is it?

Hi,

There is the generic and generic-smp;

Quote:
vmlinuz-generic-2.6.27.7 vmlinuz-generic-smp-2.6.27.7-smp
vmlinuz-huge-2.6.27.7 vmlinuz-huge-smp-2.6.27.7-smp
The above should be installed in your '/boot'. If you want the source for the kernels then look at 'source/k/'.
