Yeah, I'll see if there's any clues in the Mint kernel config. If I could get the system booted up fully, there's a lot I could do.

Does this sound feasible?
Print out Mint's lsmod.
Then:
Code:
mkdir /mnt/slack
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/slack
Then look at Mint's lsmod, find likely looking modules, and put them in Slackware's /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (or wherever).

have you checked your fstab and see if it looks correct? maybe changing fstab to uuid will help

I can't change anything until I get into the system, maybe trying what I suggested in post #17. If that sounds possible.
I've been running modinfo on some of the modules loaded in Mint, looking for anything Dell specific, anything that might interfere with booting.
I know Dell have had an on/off affair with Ubuntu, so a touch of paranoia crept in: something to impede installation of other distros?
Crazy, eh?

Kernel panic occurs way before the root filesystem is mounted, thus it is impossible fstab could be read at this stage.

If I can get to it, reading Slackware's dmesg might help.
I'll try tomorrow, feeling a little jaded now.

Sorry I'm on oppostie time zones I'm curious if my 'guess' gets any cigar
Just try tossing it in at the end, where people sometimes put "single".
It's in my kernel parms link; I checked that it didn't hurt my 14.2dvd boot.
Worth a quick try; I found it from the EIP/RIP and top of stack fcn names.
Too bad the error scrolls off. Maybe try the other .s kernels too. Idk
Best wishes (&ditto the welcomeback, tho meNewHere)

Quick summary:
14.2 won't install. Freezes right after loading kernel, shows error message in post #1, photo in post #7.
14.0 and Live (1.1.9) apparently install OK. But on reboot into installation, freeze - photo, post #10. Reboot again, and they freeze at a slightly different point (a few lines + or -, photo in post #10).
).

Photo from post #10 points to nouveau. Have you tried stopping nouveau from loading? What is the model/chipset of your nVidia card?

It's a Quadro 2000. But it doesn't always freeze at that point, with, say, a couple more reboots it will freeze before or after that stage. Not consistent.

or disable the intel pro1000 network driver.

There still remains the big question: why has Mint installed & run without problems, and Slackware can do neither of those?

Talking about this won't help. You need to experiment, maybe Mint has firmware for your nVidia and Slackware does not. Maybe the kernel nouveau driver is conflicting with some other driver. Maybe it is something else altogether, but you have to start somewhere.
