Help please! Installing Slackware 12.2 by PXE boot fails!


I already boot from PXE and prepare partitions. Then choose installing from NFS. It show me the package list as normal. I just hit ENTER and choose Full install. It seem to begin installing packages, but after about three seconds, It show me that has finished installing and configuration. What's wrong?
Thanks!!!

You typed the wrong path to the NFS export probably. Did you see errors when Slackware showed you the NFS mount results?

It first said mounting fails and tried another mounting parameter, but finally succeed.
Then I can see all files in the mounted dir.
The machine is in my company.
Now I am back home, so could not supply all the information.
Would you tell me how to solve this problem normally?
Thanks for your reply!
Best regards!

Sounds like your NFS mount is OK.
What do you have in that mounted directory? The full Slackware 12.2 directory tree?

The installer will always show the full set of package series to select from, even if the packages are not available at the mount point. The fact that your full "installation" ends after a few seconds is a sign that there are no packages below the NFS mount point (at least not in the expected location).
