Problem with Slack Install from FAT32 partition


Hi,

I want to install Slack 10 from a FAT32 partition but i have some problems.( I never do this before)

The good points:
1) I solve the SATA problem with SATA.I so for this point it's OK,
2) My Swap and other partitions are made -> OK
3) The setup found my folder where i "unzipped" the ISO
4) The key md5 is the same that the one there is in the file md5.

The bad points:
1) When the installation begin (package A), i have this kind of message: The file may be corrupted, it's impossible to read the data.
I have this for all the files and all the packages.

I think that if the md5 chek is OK so my files are ok too?
I have made the FAT32 partition under windows XP, and i have "mounted" the ISO with daemon tools to copy all the CD in the partition.

Do you see directly a bad thing that i have done?
I have no idea to solve my problem...

If someone could help me it will be great.

Thanks a lot...

first question would be...do you have fat32 file system support built into your kernel?

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

During the "pre installation", it was asking me if I want to see FAT partition that the setup auto found and to be able to go to this partition. I said yes and so i can go to this partition.

When the source location was asking to me, I had no problem with that. I told the partition (/dev/sda3 I think) and just after I told the folder (/slackware10/slackware).

Did I understand well your question?( Sorry for my English)

i have not installed from a hard drive myself, but i don't think you should extract the iso
according to this link, you should mount the iso itself

Hello,

I have made my installation from a fat32 partition.

My first error was to select the options i want in the menu and to press continue and not select. So my partitions were not formated

After resolving this error, i had sata problems on the boot time (after installation). In fact it's because i choosed the default kernel, so to solve it i choosed "bzimage from my floppy". The floppy was the image created from the sata.i file. And the sata is now supported at each boot time.

And finally my third problem, i had not kde or gnome in my setup menu, so i have copy the kde and gnome folders from the 2nd cd to the slackware folder of the cd1 (my cd1 is in my fat32 partition). And they appear in the setup menu of the installation.

Thanks for your help.

Isibix
