OK, today finally I succesfully installed Slack 9.0 on IBM 570 (p2 366, 64MB, 4gb hd /w 1.7 for linux). Had little problem since laptop isn't equipped with NIC and CDrom
Anyway I like it, especially that default kernel installed my wireless PCMCIA w/o even me trying to do anything.
However together with success , minor problems come as well.
First of all sound failed when gnome tried to bring it up, and didn't fully load.
(since i'm able to get on net, this may be easy fix).
Second of all I'd like to know how to switch between Xwindows and manage them.
Also in my boot sequence kernel is starting a lot unwanted by me proccessess. Where can i remove them.
Another question is (i'm gonna try in a sec and see if it's gonna work) about dual booting. I have 2.3 gb win98 and 1.7 slack 9.0. I have BootMagic 7 installed. During the setup i choosed the lilo to be installed in root partition. Do i need lilo at all if I'm using BootMagic? I'm gonna try to get it to work.
Also is it possible to make use of the scroll button on Thinkpad 570? It doesn't work. I'm gonna search the net for this, but any info is appreciated.
Thanks for listening, and your help.
I'm very impressed /w Slackware 9.0
..o yeah and the fresh install font ...grrr....easy fix?
