install slack to lg x110 day 1

Posted 04-26-2015 at 11:15 PM by mrknify

Today I installed Slackware via an sd card. It did not go smoothly.

Set up a packaging system on an old laptop

Posted 09-17-2009 at 11:10 AM by henryxcrudos (henryxcrudos' Linux Projects)

I plan to set up a packaging-only system for VectorLinux Light on an old laptop (Acer Travelmate 212TXV). VectorLinux Light is a great, fast, lightweight Slackware-based distribution.

Stage 1: Setting up the system

Installation of VectorLinux Light 6.0

- Burned CD-R from ISO
- Installed distribution using the text-installer
- Booted

  1. X GUI Login screen not available, screen blanks after boot
