I upgraded a laptop running 14.2 using slackpkg, and afterwards it will
not boot. Lilo hangs after BIOS check. I tried grub super rescue but
cannot find a kernel which works, either they hang or panic.
Is there a way to revert to the previous kernel? I cannot find it.
If you can boot, put a 3 at the end of the boot syntax before you boot
and run the upgrade again. See if that helps.
I run multiple computers for testing and there are 3 computers on my
desktop with amd and intel and each one has 14.2 installed, none have
had boot problems. I say this to let you know the problem is probably
somewhere between the chair and the keyboard. But I really don't know a
lot about much of anything. :)
