Maybe I'm missing something but what would sshd have to do with this problem?

What does this last line mean:

Code:
Mar 15 17:04:36 darkstar sshd[1502]: error: Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0 failed: Address already in use.
? I don't really know. But it may have something to do with sshd ?

Ok, tried disabling sshd. "chmod -x rc.sshd" would do it, right? Still didn't boot. Also tried disabling ACPID the same way, which also had no effect.

Yeah I saw the error regarding sshd but I can't imagine it would have anything to do with the touchpad issue.

Slapping myself in the forehead. I didn't catch this the first time I read the OP.

If you used the 2.6.18 kernel off the DVD you're going to have problems. There is something wrong with it. I also had troubles with that one as have several other people.

Go to kernel.org and download the kernel from there and compile it. You can copy the config file from /boot over to .config in that source directory and compile using that (do a make menuconfig to make sure everything you need is included).

That solved my problem. I have no idea what's wrong with the one on the installation discs but there is definitely something wrong with it.

Fixed! After some extensive googling, I found a few similar cases, and tried "acpi=off". I can now successfully boot slackware. I'm going to continue going through drives/modules and try to determine the specific acpi culprit (I know there are several different drivers for different laptops). Hopefully I can get acpi to work. If I understand it correctly, I have to get acpi working to do things like power saving (slowing CPU clock, etc).

Thanks for the help!

Forgot to mention: I am now using the huge26.s kernel. It works a lot better than 2.6.17.
