Living the Slackware, and LOVING IT!

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

Thursday, Sept. 8th, 2011

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:

"./configure --prefix=/usr", "make" and "make install"

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

Linux Family

Posted 09-08-2011 at 12:11 PM by blogfan247

I like linux and applaude all that contribute to the "linux cause" meaning any progression toward linux success!!!
I may be a newbie but, that really matters less now than it did before I learned more about the opensource;free software foundation;windows 7 sins and the many strides programmers in conferences have educated/shared the knowledge with more fans of this movement. Share your thoughts with me if you would those love linux. I can't wait for the bright future that awaits

Raid Root System

Posted 09-08-2011 at 06:57 AM by SukiiPooru

My first attempts at a raid root system failed in that the raid was created but failed to boot because raids were not being assembled by initrd.
I am having another attempt by following this procedure:
It takes a while to assemble raid6 arrays ... be patient
