Slackware hangs on post-install boot
I installed slackware fine on my Dell D600 Laptop, and everything was going well (partition scheme by the way if this matters is windows on one, a shared vfat partition, and the linux extended which is swap and root)

When I go to boot slackware from linux loader it gets going fine and everything, but then it hangs after it reaches this line:

cs: IO port probe 0x0c00-0x0c00: clear
cs: IO port probe 0x0800-0x08ff:

and then it stops.

If you need any more info on it I'd be glad to provide it. Thanks

Here is your answer...........I hope you still need it :)

In short this is what you need to do :)

Slackware - First Boot
The first time Slackware 9.0 was booted the system hung when PCMCIA cardmgr started. Luckily I had seen this documented at the Linux on Laptops web site. Owen Cliffe's website listed some modifications to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts . Since the system wouldn't boot, a KNOPPIX bootable CD was used to boot the system and modify the file. Another option would be to use the Slackware Install CD as it too can be used for this type of problem.

The laptop was booted using a bootable Linux CD, the Slackware partion was mounted read-write, the file /etc/pcmcia/config.opts as follows: from include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff,port 0xc00-0xcff to include port 0x100-0x4ff,port 0xc00-0xcff (credit to )Mark Holbrook and the system was rebooted. Once the changes were made Slackware booted quickly without any problems.
