"le TAR noeveau est arrvé"(*)

Living the Slackware, and LOVING IT!

Posted 09-08-2011 at 07:18 PM by Z_Tagr

I have been learning the "ropes" of Linux AND Slackware now since around the first of July, and am coming along quite well, I think!

I have been studying many different kinds of bash scripts, leaning heavily towards the "Slackbuild" scripts, as I was a tad familiar with the:

The main plan

Posted 09-08-2011 at 02:10 PM by ButterflyMelissa


Every project needs a roadmap, so does mine. Just a checklist so as not to skip/forget anything

- boot the PC with stick & CDrom
- get networking up and going
- make a user
- set the root pass
- make a symlink from the /home folder (in memory at that time) to the /home folder on the stick - the user already existed...
- change to the user
- do the ./configure and make of every dependency
- become Root
