Slackware 12 install halt
I was stuck on "
Serial: 8250/16550 driver $ Revision: and etc ports, IRQ sharing enable" and nothing happens...no additional line or prompt.
What would I do, I wait for couple of minutes but still didn't go thru.Also, i tried huge.s but the same. I installed slackware 11 on this pc few months back and its fine.
Have you experience this prior to install proper? This is weird..pls any suggestion is badly needed...tnks.
Sorry for this late reply but try to append to your kernel this option
Hope this help.

Try acpi=off - it worked for me
The 2.6 kernel doesn't seem to like my hardware either. While the 2.4 never gave any trouble. I solved most issues by append="acpi=force pci=noacpi". I had different errors though. But you may have to try different settings in order to get it working.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
for me for example when i use ubuntu with the 2.6 no problem but under slackware 12.0 i got crazy from seeing my screen goes blank after some time from the boot. adding acpi=off boot the machine but not acpi and no battery or cpu frequency scaling. after some work (i was very close to switch completely to debian) i disable everything in /etc/udev/rules.d related to 60-pcmcia.rules and my machine works.
