Install d2 slackware 13.1


Thanks Marklush.
I have now followed the command mount -o loop slackware-13.1-install-d2.iso /wolfie
i then navigated to wolfie directory and did a ls which displayed checksums.md5, checksums.md5.asc, file list.txt, packages.txt, read_d2.txt and 2 words in blue which i guess are directories the one is slackware/ and the other source/
I think i am close to cracking this nut but not sure how to unzip or run the program to install disk 2, and would also like to now what the -o loop commands mean
Thanks

Well, in the slackware directory you'll find the packages, they are in folders like a, ap .... up to x, xap and y. cd into every folder and execute
Code:
installpkg *.txz
this will install all packages.

The mount -o loop .... command means "mount the isofile to the directory...". By doing this you'll find in the directory the same files and directories like they are on the burned CD. Look here: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/857/m...file-in-linux/

Slackware d2 installed

Thanks to post i have successfully installed d2 of slackware 13.1, the reason for the installation was to try and get a gui to make life easier although i have learnt many commands without it! so now from root i have tried to run startx but all that displays is "xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.24376
fatal server error:
could not create lock file in /tmp/.tx0-lock
please consult the the The X.org for help
giving up.
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

Any ideas - i am new here and unsure if i should be posting this q in a differnt forum
