Hi "poetgrant",

A while back I also bought an ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB. I installed 14.2 32bit on it, and it was great. Then, one day a new kernel was released for 14.2, and I installed it, and then during booting the screen would go black. I knew the computer ran fine, because I could connect to it by ssh, and login --> and found everything as I expected it to be. My thread about this is here:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ch-4175649029/

My solution was to install the then current 32bit kernel from Slackware-current. Ever since, I have been using this computer quite a bit every day. It is my primary computer for email --- the computer has absolutely NO trouble running Alpine in a console, while running Postfix in the background. :-)

As the new 32bit kernels were released for Slackware-current I installed them. So far, I have had no trouble.

From time to time I run X and WindowMaker for a while. I find these are snappy enough. (For intensive web-browsing I generally use a computer with a bigger screen, more RAM, and a more powerful processor.)

Thank you! I only just tried current and it works perfectly! Thank you. I am going to about that I never even thought about doing this. I honestly just assumed that I screwed something up.

Thanks again to @Lysander666 for pointing me to this fix.
Wait! :-) Wasn't I the one which first informed you of this fix? Remember back when you and I were discussing this? https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ml#post5970002
