Slackware Crash when update to current

Hi people!

I was using the Slack 13.1, and when I change the mirror to Current and upgrade( and reboot after this) my Slackware stops in the Message "Loading Linux" and makes a million of beeps....

Anyone had the same problem??

Thnaks for your help!

Upgraded via slackpkg? Did you issue a "slackpkg install-new" before?

Are you using the generic or huge kernel?

Remarkably similar to your other thread...

What mirror did you select? Are you sure you selected the correct (32-bit, presumably) mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors? Did you read UPGRADE.TXT/CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT before upgrading? Did you modify /etc/lilo.conf and rerun `lilo` afterward (since the kernel would have been updated)? There are more questions to be asked than bits of information provided and therefore it is very difficult to help you at all.
