Problems after upgrade to -current

I just used slackpkg to update from 13.37 to -current on Slackware64. After the restart I have no keyboard & or mouse.

I followed the advice from this post and the article referenced.

slackpkg ran lilo after the upgrade and it appears to boot fine to 2.6.38. I booted using Slack64-huge but when I get the kde login no keyboard or mouse movement works.

Any thoughts?

I fixed this following onebuck's advice in this thread to get started. I fixed lilo.conf, but it was still having issues so I regenerated initrd and ran lilo once more.
