Welcome to SW. Since you are familiar with apt, you should take a look at slapt-get and install it if it will suit your needs. SW web page has pkg search tool to find pkg of interest. You can mount cd1 and cd2 to look for particular pkg also. All the pkgs you want are readily available on install cds or from SW download web page. linuxpackages web page is also available. Be mindful that some pkgs from linuxpackages are built from installs with Freerock Gnome so you may have trouble with some of those working in SW10.2.
http://wwww.slackersbible.org/book or Linux Essentials Book2 by Alan Hicks etal( in documents section of linuxpackages web page) are useful for orienting yourself to SW. Have fun

netconfig is contained in tcpip package. It may be found along with other apps requested by you on 1st installation CD in subdirectory slackware/n ie. section 'n' as networking progs/tools.

Wow, I hope all your posts arent like that.


Anyway, have a look at linuxpackages.net and make sure you get slapt-get

SatanicHare, not all my posts are like that. But an hour before this post he was dabbling in installing Debian on this particular machine.

Had a rough day at the office. You're right, I should have avoided answering this post with a "RTFM before posting questions that have been answered a hundred times"... Shame on me... Won't happen again!

There are some instructions in the /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld file that should help you fix this. You probably want to create a /etc/my.cnf tailored for a low resource machine (there are some examples in /etc too).

netconfig is in /sbin its probably installed but isnt in your path.

just do /sbin/netconfig

if you cant find a command you might want to try slocate.
to set it up: (database has to be updated when new files are added)
updatedb
to use it:
locate <command name, or file you are looking for>

Ok, thanks for your help!

The mysql error was because of permissions.

And i didnīt have netconfig because i didnīt installed tcpip package.

Now everything is working. Iīm really impressed with slackware, itīs really stable and fast!

Iīm thinking of migrating my mail server to slackware, i really enjoyed it.
