First off, I tried to search EVERYWHERE on the internet for this issue but didn't find it so don't flame a n00b trying to learn :/
I installed Slack 13.1 back when when I had Win xp as the host through VMWARE with no problems but now I have Win 7.
I have tried multiple installs and configs of Slack 13.1 in Win 7 but I continue to get the same errors.
Here is the error that occurs after installation when the system asks you to change root password :
anything from a 1.5 gb swap to a 2gb swap was tried and 4gb for home and 4gb for usr and 30gb for root.
If i cancel that, exit setup, and go back to command line, the system wont reboot from command line only ctl alt del..then when I reboot..or close and start VM fresh..it hangs...
Any Ideas? I tried a default install of '8 GB' from VMWARE and it worked fine with a 1gb swap, and just a root with what was left..I dont want to be limited to that small if possible since I will need multiple gb to runa bbs, and mail server, msql, website, and file storage exceeding 300gb..
