Just finished updating the site, fixed some errors in the structure of the website itself and entered some corrections.

Will add new content probably next week coz I have to work during the weekend.

Well done, Instye. Great layout. Very easy to understand and i think it'll be of much use to all those people or are thinking of migrating to Slackware. Once again a job well done.

Changed the lilo lines to:
bitmap=/boot/Slackware_Moonboot.bmp
bmp-colors=9,,0,13,,0
bmp-table=40p,384p,1,2
bmp-timer=5p,3p,5,0,0

and I have a beautiful bootscreen for my 9.1.

Still don't know how to select the numbers, this was a clueless guess

Hehe good for you, I guess the change in bmp colors and bmp timer colors did it.

Just curious what's the value of your vesa frame buffer in lilo.conf?

I'm thinking that its the color 255 that caused the error. Or maybe its something else completely. Anyway as long as it works

1024x768 is your screen resolution and 256 is color depth

Hey insyte, thanks for the nice site. Beautiful layout, yet simple and well structured. Lots of Slackers will find it very useful.

Nice tutorial insyte
Just a thing that called my attention, in the Kernel Compile section, you didn't mention to edit lilo.conf and add an entry for the new kernel, and keeping the old one to boot in case of a wrong kernel compile.

Oh yeah forgot about that, hehe since I did that during the 1st compile, I just recalled the steps during my suceeding recompiles (which were a lot)

Thanks

kernel recompile

Well kernel recompile page is currently down. Freewebs.com wouldn't let me update my site anymore, at least until next week, will try to look for a better free web server if it doesn't work out.

Anyway until next week....

For some reason, although the site said I was over my transfer limit, it accepted my re edited kernel compile page.

So its ok now.
