Would you think there is a kernel mod to fix this? I wonder if when I installed the new kernel, it unloaded the mods being used?

This is one of those occasions whereby uploading your computer info to https://linux-hardware.org/ would probably be a big help, since it would tell you where the incompatibilities were with all your hardware and it will offer fixes where available.

Have a look at this thread:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...rg-4175662855/

You could do all this at the command line [i.e. downloading hw-probe and its depends, making the package, installing it and uploading your info], as long as you are able to get to work in the command line once your computer has booted and you can connect to your network.

To make it easier, I've uploaded my own Slackware-compatible binary, so all you would have to do would be

Code:
wget https://filebin.net/3e6x7fhvmk84688r/hwprobe.txz
to get it, and then just install it and run the commands as given on the website.

EDIT: You may need hwinfo/libx86emu from SBo too.

FWIW I get the same types of errors in my dmesg log on the 1000H:

I do not think it is a kernel issue.
I looked up "[drm] GMBUS [i915 gmbus dpd] timed out, falling back to bit banging" and found this.

This shows that your wireless device has been connected. This suggests that /etc/rc.d/rc.M is running. After networking is started, /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 is run, which tries to start NFS. The OP mentions a main machine. Perhaps there is an issue with NFS. If you can SSH in, and /etc/rc.nfsd and /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc are executable, then I suggest chmod -x both those files and rebooting.

Okay, so would it be bad if there is no `/etc/rc.nfsd` file?

If you can SSH in, then the sshd daemon has been started. The nfsd daemon is started after that. If you have been using NFS with NFS mounts specified in /etc/fstab, but there is no /etc/rc.nfsd script, then yes, bad.

Is there any chance your machine is booting into runlevel 4 and X is hanging there with a black screen? Maybe do a quick check of /etc/inittab for the line:
Code:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:
If its set to 4, you could change it back to 3 and try a reboot. Not sure if this was suggested yet.

Nothing extraordinary in your kernel log and I believe it's worth trying to disable the framebuffer console.

Either try what enorbet suggested in #7:
- in /etc/lilo.conf modify the append line and add nomodeset:
Code:
append="vt.default_utf8=0 nomodeset"
- then, as root, run /sbin/lilo to update the bootloader
- & restart the system

Or, provide the i915 driver the modeset=0 parameter:
- create /etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf with the following content:
Code:
options i915 modeset=0
- & restart the system

Oh dang... I want to try this. As soon as I get off work I'll try this... Man I hope this fixes it....


Also I did check, I'm not booting into runlevel 4. I never changed away from 3.

I'm going to try the modprobe first.

Have a look at this thread:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...rg-4175662855/

You could do all this at the command line [i.e. downloading hw-probe and its depends, making the package, installing it and uploading your info], as long as you are able to get to work in the command line once your computer has booted and you can connect to your network.

To make it easier, I've uploaded my own Slackware-compatible binary, so all you would have to do would be

Code:
wget https://filebin.net/3e6x7fhvmk84688r/hwprobe.txz
to get it, and then just install it and run the commands as given on the website.

EDIT: You may need hwinfo/libx86emu from SBo too.
I get "File format not recognized" and "corrupt archive" errors from that file you linked. I just got it from the github source instead and can confirm you need the hwinfo/libx86emu deps to make it work.

I also uploaded a probe of the 1000H if anyone wants to see the hardware on it. https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?probe=50da35c0d0

This also made me remember that I put a different wifi card in the eee back in 2009. Didn't recall that until I looked at this.

So I tried both options here and it didn't change anything. I really want to fix this before I decide to just reinstall from the USB drive I have. I'm installing hw-probe and all that, just in case.

One thing though... when I run /sbin/lilo it returns saying there was one warning. Do you know where those warnings are stored? Maybe that is a clue?

Sorry to hear that the nomodeset workaround didn't work.

AFAIK, lilo warnings are only displayed and not stored, you should pay attention to them. You can reissue /sbin/lilo any times you like and focus on the warning.

If you want the older Slackware 14.2 kernel, the one you said it worked before, you don't need to reinstall the whole system. Just grab the kernel and the kernel modules from here (get the kernel-huge-smp-* and kernel-modules-smp-*):
https://mirror.de.leaseweb.net/slack...2/slackware/a/
(or any other mirror you prefer)
Install them and modify your lilo.conf to point to the old kernel.

But then, maybe you'd like to try a newer kernel, the one from -current, again, the kernel-huge-smp-* & kernel-modules-smp-* from:
https://mirror.de.leaseweb.net/slack...t/slackware/a/

FWIW Lilo is pretty picky. It will generally fail even on fairly non serious errors. Warnings like "LBA32 is assumed" are generally inconsequential but easily solved. AFAIK they are not stored so just run /sbin/lilo again if you miss any for any reason.
