1. The first 80gb of my hard drive are empty from where I had XP, what do I use to move and resize my partitions
2. Does the 2.6.4 kernel come with supermount support if not how do I install it?
The latest Slackware version is 9.1 -- and now let me welcome
you to Slack! Even though you may have some frustrating times
getting everything working to your tastes, you will soon be glad
that you've dumped Mirco$loth's eXperiment. With Slack you'll
learn Linux. Also, I'd like to recommend Fluxbox as your window
manager. When I first started I used KDE, but have switched to
Flux and find it a lot faster and more customizable than KDE. You
can search through this screenshot thread
to get some ideas.
To change window managers, when you have logged in at the
prompt, issue the command $ xwmconfig and then you'll get a
screen where you can switch your wm, then you'll be returned
to the prompt and type $ startx - actually, any time you want
to try another wm, just hit Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and it will shut
down your x-server and send you to a prompt.
(1) you can use cfdisk to do anything you want to partitions -
issue the command $ man cfdisk and read up on it.
(2) supermount has been around so I'd assume you can use
it though I've had no personal experience with it or 2.6.x.
For information that you don't know, it's always best to use the
function here at LQ, and also - always remember -
Google is your friend! For Linux specific searches use ->
Wow, dumping Windoze was a good, bold move! Keep your
patience, do your homework before you post, and the guys
here will help you run Slack like you always wished that evil
os would run!
