Grub on Slackware


Hi,

How do I install Grub on Slackware? I got the rpm from a RedHat distribution. I'm rpm -i but don't know how to carry on. Don't understand the notes from gnu.org. Can someone tell me the steps?

Rpm is NOT supported by slack. The best you can do with it is to get rpm2tgz and to convert.

Gidday!

First of all, learn this little poem:

RPM bad, tgz good!
RPM bad, tgz good!

:}

Then go to
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/
and learn the rest ;)

Cheers,
Tink
