Loading Slackware 12.1

Sunday 11 of May, 2008
Release 12.1 of the famous Slackware disto went gold this past week. I loaded it this week with few issues. A couple things of note.

Pat highly recommends the use of a generic kernel. I installed it today with a initrd file. Here's the mkintrd command I needed

mkinitrd -c -k -f ext3 -m ext3 -r /dev/sda1

BTW, I confused the underscore and hyphen before the smp in the kernel spec and the system wouldn't boot ("no kernel modules found").
