Install slackware over SSH?


Im about to install a slackware server. The problem is i dont have a monitor for the moment. Is there any chance there might be a way to do it without? Im only installing slackware13 disk 1. When I have booted from this, can i install and start sshd before I enter the partition table and the "setup"? Cause if I can, i could install it by using ssh from my laptop.

any suggestions?

I found an even easier way to do it. Booting up from the CD, pressing enter to boot kernel and enter on keyboardmap-question. after login then write.

dhcpcd eth0
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.dropbear - dont actually think you need to do this.
./etc/rc.d/rc.dropbear start

then you got the ssh server up and running. after login, type: source /etc/profile and then you can run SETUP
Easy way to install slackware without monitor.

The problem is, how do you see what you type if you do not have that monitor attached? Blind-typing is not all that great. But yes, it will work.



install, monitor, slackware, ssh
