[HOWTO] Slackware 32 and 64 bit on a single side/face dvd


Do you want a slackware dvd containing both 32 and 64 bit packages using a normal dvd? (no dual layer, no dual side, no double face)

I written a script that create it.

slackware-mix-dvd.sh

You must to download both 32&64 dvd iso (and mount it) or slackware-tree (you may not download source/ directory). It support both -current and -stable versions.
Next you must modify the script configuration to adjust the path where are the slackware-tree and which packages do you want include.
ALL txz exceed the dvd size (about 4.8 GB).
You can choose:
1) exclude extra/ testing/ patch/ pasture/ . This fit into a dvd.
2) limit the languages supported (kdei and aspell)
Code:
# Where I can find slackware&slackware64 official tree
# May be the downloaded tree or premounted iso/dvd

#X86=/mnt/cdrom
#X64=/mnt/iso64
X86=$CWD/official-tree/slackware-current
X64=$CWD/official-tree/slackware64-current

# You must to limit which packages to include due fit in ONE dvd.
INCLUDE_EXTRA=yes # or yes
INCLUDE_PATCHES=yes # or yes
INCLUDE_PASTURE=yes # or yes
INCLUDE_TESTING=yes # or yes
INCLUDE_MISC=yes # or yes (misc/ is only on dvd, for 13.37)
INCLUDE_LOCALE="en es it fr en_GB" # or "" for all or "en" for none (you must install at least english :-)
Or you can download the prebuilt iso image from http://files.z01.eu/iso/
(contains slackware 14rc1 with en es it fr en_GB languages included)

Is it possible to use this script to create an USB-installer with the complete 32 and 64 bit repositories? Would be nice to have an 8GB USB device to install Slackware from.

Never tested the official usb installer of slackware (I use a my custom), so I dont know which changes I must to do, but I think that it's possible.

I have not tried this but this looks like one way to do it:

This has worked well for me:

Thanks, chess, exactly what I thought about.

@Anonymo: With unetbootin you can make either a 32 bit USB installer or a 64 bit USB installer, but not a combined one.

I'd like to have a tool (and maybe I should be the one to make it) that creates the hybrid bootable image file, ready to either "dd" to a USB memory stick, or burn to a DVD (probably need a blue one), that has both a full scale live system with KDE and Xfce, and the installer, and all the packages, for both architectures, and for both 13.37 and 14.0, all chooseable at the boot loader menu.

I'll go hide now.

You will not have enough space on a DVD to have 4 complete repositories on it, not even speaking about a live system.

No, he does not want a dvd with 4 repositories. He want 4 slackware repository + 4 slackware live system.

To do this may be needed a double layer&double face dvd or a double face blueray or a 32G pendrive :-)

edit:
Sorry, I had not read well your post. You already cited the live system :-)
