    No problem!

    EDIT more bugs found!!!!

    You need to install a few modules for perl.
    Code:
    perl -MCPAN -e shell  
    cpan>install Net::DNS
    cpan>m /Expect/
    cpan>install Expect
    cpan>force install Net::Pcap
    cpan>force install Net::SSLeay
    cpan>install Net::RawIP
    Needed for airsnarf ETC. Also adding it to the tut Make sure you force install Pcap and SSLeay in not they won't install.

    And if anybody is interested in getting bittorrent working and dvd burners ETC post!!

    LINUX KICKS ASS lol where have I been !!!

    I'm happy to report that thanks to dr. green and exit only answering all my dumb questions I am now rockin' slackware 12 with the 2.6.22.9 kernel and alfa usb and intel3495 are working. I wanted to thank those 2 on the public board. I now have a good understanding of linux kernel procedures that I never had. My only issue is now the cd drive. It was working at point but now when I try to mount it , it say HAL must be enabled. anyone know what this means?

    Hey purehate

    HAL should be started at startup. If not you may have missed a file in /etc/rc.d The file in question is rc.M Check to see if this exists in that file.

    Code:
    # Start HAL:
    if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hald ]; then
      sh /etc/rc.d/rc.hald start
    fi
    If not add it. If you want to start it manually the command is

    Code:
    hald start | stop | reset
    I would double check you modified all the files in the rc.d folder. I know that job is a pain in the bum but gota be done

    After modding your rc.d files restart and you should see in between all the other stuff

    Starting HAL daemon /etc/sbin/hald start --daemon=yes or something like that

    Hope this helps

    Any one who wants to build even more on the slackware 12 os can use this tutorial to install flash player,fuse,google earth and most of all open office which I like much better that koffice.

    Talking

    well, as purehate sugested in some other topic, i've been trying to get it to work;

    the first atempt was a total failure,
    on as well lilo, as the rest of the kernel

    ( lilo was gone, and not getting back) .... mbr was foobar)

    after deciding to fix that on a later time, i decided to boot the new kernal using the live cd using /boot/vmlinuz as bootoption)

    the thing i missed was:
    Note that the generic* kernels will require an
    initrd, and 11.0's mkinitrd is unable to build a suitable one,
    ( source: ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar..._AND_HINTS.TXT )

    ofcource it resulted in kernel panic...

    so with this information i decided to start all over again .
    at the time of writing i'm now using this guide and the link i posted above,

    see how this works out.

    at this moment i'm upgrading all packages,
    but i do not yet have a good sense of which packages to remove after this is done.

    at this moment i have to get off to work, so if i get back i hope you guys can give me some hints on how to go further.
    ( i know the info i posted is a bit less)

    and i guess i'm just a bit too much NOOB,

    but i'm learning....

    well, g2g now
    nice manual though on how to get it working,.

    well about the kernell panic, i think it had to do something with initrd

    and , yeah, i guess i have to remove everythong and reinstall the bt12 packages again

    only it takes quite some time...
