Installing Slackware 13 on Asus Eee PC 1201n Netbook. I683.


Hey all, I'm trying to install slackware 13 on my netbook. It is an Asus Eee 1201n With the Nvidia Ion.

I was wondering which kernel to install. It says press "F2" for a list of kernels but it only gives me "huge.s" and something else. Can I install it on i686 arch?

If so what are some of the kernels I can install?

Any help would be great. If you need more information let me know.

Use the huge.s to install, then switch to the generic after. You'll need an initrd for the generic kernel. To find a suitable command to create one, run this in the terminal:
Code:
/usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh
Then add an entry to /etc/lilo.conf like this, changing the partition number to suit:
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.29.6
  initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
  root = /dev/sda2
  label = Linux_G
  read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends
Then run:
Code:
lilo
Reboot, and you should be OK.
P.S.
That kernel name is from Slackware 64, I can't remember if the generic-smp kernel in 32 bit Slack is named differently. So that might need changing for your lilo.conf..

Yeah, 32 bit (which you have) lilo.conf is different, it should be:
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-smp-2.6.29.6-smp
  initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
  root = /dev/sda2
  label = Linux_G
  read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends
With whatever your partition number.
