Slackware Question


Hey All,

I heard that there is no longer a Slackware Live CD. If I chose to download the installation CD ISO's from the internet, would it be more than one CD?

Hello,

there has never been a Slackware Live-CD. You can get a DVD-iso image or a set of six CD-iso images where you'll need only three of them since the others are the sources of the packages.

It is possible to download the packages and make your own iso-image.

I'm not really familiar with it, but you might check out Slax. It's a live distro based on Slackware.

If one wants to install the distribution, I think he'd to go on with Slackware.

If you have to you can make do with the first cd.
I did it,,,,,,,, once.
You'll do a looooot of typing and installing to get things just so-so.
Much better to download the dvd or if necessary all 3 of the first 3 cd's.
Still efficient either way you go.
