I have run into similar problems. I was able to get the Slakware 2.3.0 kernel
installed, but the setup program originally crashed when installing the C
compiler. I had some luck moving the scsi id's of my devices around, now it
just crashes about halfway through the installation of X.. The error message
that I received was very much the same. I was able to run this same
configuration with an earlier version of Slakware (2.1.0 or there abouts)
without incident. The only variables thrown in are the Hercules Dynamite
(ET4000) video and a new 2.1 GB SCSI Hard drive from Conner. After the crash,
I am still able to get to the hard drive, but am unable to get to the triple
speed NEC CDROM (which, of course has the Slakware CD). Phoooeyy.
I'll keep beating on it. Please let me know if you have any luck.
