Gslapt informs me that I have php7 installed.  I removed mysql then installed it.  I find that I have to

If I don't mkdir /run/mysqld, mysqld complains that it can't open a socket in that directory.

That can't be right.. surely, TLF has the best interest of the end user in mind. Just look at the distinguished list of members:

Ensure PHP is the most current "stable". Then redo your MYSQL installation. Something in your install has a mismatch, and if I recall, the only way to fix that error is to reinstall the offending "module", which is MYSQL in this case.

My test was using 32 bit.

Is that 32 or 64 bit?
my understanding is that firefox uses eme, widevine and html5 and one can use netflix at least on 64 bit. on 32 bit I think you have to still use flash and some other tweaks like a spoofer. flash 25 is available on for slackware..but I am not sure what other tweaks are required...will try on 64 bit without flash and see what happens. any one know what the 32bit requires?

If you absolutely have to have flash, this method still works:

I just tested FF 52.0.2 on VL 7.2 Light B2.1 by downloading it from, extracting it to /opt and running /opt/firefox/firefox

No flash is installed.
Logged in to Pandora and music plays fine.
Logged in to Netflix, but I don't have a streaming account so can't say how that works.

After a careful study of the man pages, I ran mkinitrd with both the -c and the -F options to clear the old initrd-tree.  I fixed the broken links manually (, config, and vmlinuz), but oddly enough grub never objected to them in the first place.  (My guess is that they are used only by lilo, not grub.)  Anyway, everything seems to be working fine now, and the "No kernel modules found" message is gone.  I don't think I need the old kernel any more, so I deleted it and and updated grub once again.  Success!

Thanks for the helpful advice.
