I've been using the Liquorix kernel for a while on my old Dell D620 and I never had any troubles. However on my new laptop it wouldn't boot. I get lots of error messages, which I can't read.
The sidux kernel works fine enough.

Any Ideas?

I honestly can't trouble shoot an issue like this without the error message. You're also upgrading from an old kernel maintained by a different distributor.

Is it possible for you to boot to Debian's 2.6.35 kernel to verify that it is or is not a Linux regression? If you have trouble booting on my kernel specifically then that's something I should know about.

I found the problem. In BIOS Settings I enabled Intel Virtualization Technology for Direct I/0.
It worked with the Kernel 2.6.34-0.slh.11-sidux-686 not with your 2.6.35-4.dmz.1-liquorix-686 Kernel.

Thank you for your time.

I have some questions about your e6410:

1. Have you been able to resume after sleeping?
2. Have you been able to get your touchpad to be detected properly? (scrolling, etc)
