Installed Minimal Slack incl. dhcp/dhcpd but what to install to connect?
OK, several questions.
Installed Slack-12.2, DSL and TTYLinux to a VHD 1GB and can't update slackpkg's 'cause it says turn off CHECKGPG, which I did, and something
about installing gnugpg or something?
So, how to fix this?
And how to fix internet, as I have always on broadband and dhcp is usually what I use?
Other strange things, after installing I used Grub and to boot Slack and others successfully here's what I had to do to make the menu.lst-
If I tell slack "kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1"
It says "no setup image found" and won't boot??
If I use (hd0,1), which should be hda2(ttylinux), it boots into slack
and says "darkstar login:"
What's going on here?
Any help appreciated..
PortaSlack install is most of a, and others, comes up to 283MB
Installed-so how to get internet working and issues with
The first thing that strikes me is that we do not have anywhere near enough information to proceed with either of these. The second is that they would be better separated into two threads.
1) Portaslack/minimal slack
2) Try putting the root on a separate line for example
To get the internet to work you need to adjust the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file, look for this at the top of the script.
Copy the TTYLinux kernel over using a different name, and then change it back to (hd0,0), and it should work.
OK, thanks guys, but no dice...
I tried several options with this one and so I am re-installing to a different VHD
and try to dual boot with DSL and use lilo instead of Grub....maybe
I made a 1.8GB vhd and 3 partitions; hda1=slack, hda2=dsl, and a swap partition.
This time I installed alot + fluxbox and xfce.
Any pointers on adding dsl from hda2 to my lilo.conf?
OK, more info guys- I'm installing slack to a portable vhd made with portable qemu-img
and called it simply "vhd"
"qemu-img create vhd 1800M"
Then I boot up slack12.2 DVD and use cfdisk to chop up the vhd.
OK, again start slack DVD and install.
