What about getty


Hello!

I can't find the package getty in bluewhite 12.1, but I can find it on my Slackware 12.1 system. Why hasn't got bluewhite64 the package getty?

Best Regards
Christian

OK, thank you. I have found another missing package. It's loadlin (well, I don't need it, but it's included in Slackware 12.1 (series a)

By the way: There are some mistakes inside the slack-descs of the kernels (kernel-huge)

# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must
# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also
# customary to leave one space after the ':'.

kernel-huge: kernel-huge (a fully-loaded SMP Linux kernel)
kernel-huge:
kernel-huge: This is a Linux kernel with built-in support for most disk
kernel-huge: controllers. If you're looking for a more stripped down kernel
kernel-huge: (this one contains everything but the kitchen sink ;-), then install
kernel-huge: the kernel-generic-smp in the /boot directory along with an initrd to
kernel-huge: load support for your boot device and filesystem. For instructions
kernel-huge: on the initrd, see README.initrd in the /boot directory.
kernel-huge:
kernel-huge: SMP is "Symmetric multiprocessing", or multiple CPU/core support.

Well, I think you have used the original slack-desc from Slackware, but I think, bluewhite64 hasn't got a kernel-generic-smp.

loadlin is a bootloader that runs on DOS systems
I doubt anybody will need it
