Hi there...I just got the Slackware '96 4-CD set, and I ran into some
problems today when I was installing...since I only have two IDE hard
drives and one IDE CD-ROM (on the secondary bus, but it shouldn't
matter, since the Slackware 3.0 kernel always found it fine), I used
the bare.i image...when I tried to boot the disk, it hung up at the
"LI" part of "LILO", locking the system. Trying other bootdisks did
the same thing...
Finally, I solved the problem by using one of the bootdisks from the
Slackware 3.0 set from last year, along with the Slackware '96
rootdisk color.gz, got the system installed, and then compiled the
kernel I needed from the 2.0.0 source, making a new bootdisk.
Everything now works, and soon I get to start reinstalling the few
utils I had on the old system. :)
Problem is, I don't wanna have to rely upon the 3.0 bootdisks to make
the '96 set install, should I ever have to start from scratch
again...does anyone know why the stock bootdisks would lock up at
"LI", and what I might be able to do to make 'em work? Thanks in
advance for the help...
