Slackware 12 install halt
I am about to install slackware 12 dvd iso, i got from slackware mirror site. But when I booted the dvd with default kernel hugesmp.s
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.

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.
