I also have a problem when it comes down to installing Slack.

I bought a stack of blank DVD-RW, and when it shows me the slackware boot prompt, it gets stuck on AACPMCI or something like that for like thirty minutes.

Is this normal for a Slack install or is it an unusual bug?

Well give us a little more detail than "or something like that". We can't really diagnose the issue without seeing what's going on precisely. I don't hear too very many issues with booting up the installer. It's simple and lightweight and generally runs pretty well. Anyway, post us the details of where it's hanging...

Here's where the installation is hanging:
Code:
Adaptec aacraid driver 1.1-5[26400]-ms

I might have missed something, but are you still installing inside a VM as you told earlier on this thread ? If so which VM software ? Or do you install on the 'real' machine ?

No I'm not installing on a VM (I only did that for Arch and Gentoo.
I'm trying to install on my actual computer, but so far nothing's working.

On Virtualbox, the installer cranks through everything without issue (I tried Slackware 8 in VBox a few years ago)

Well it's hard to help you because I've never had any problem in the install phase. The only thing I could recommend is to create a separate, specific and explicit thread about your problem, so people having the same problem as you might help you. Feeding this current thread might hide the problem to people who'd be able to help you.

Good luck !
