I generated a new Cinnamon ISO last night on a virtual machine using this command:
Code:
./make_slackware_live.sh -d CINNAMON -s /mnt/auto/sox/ftp/pub/Linux/Slackware
The directory "/mnt/auto/sox/ftp/pub/Linux/Slackware/" contains the "slackware64-current" subdirectory with a full Slackware mirror, created using my mirror script.
The liveslak scripts were cloned using the command:
Code:
git clone git://bear.alienbase.nl/liveslak.git ; cd liveslak
The process went flawlessly.

So you have been able to create Cinnamon flavor of the SlackwareLive. That's a good news. Can you then provide step by step instructions, please?

I agree it is some sort of instruction, but not a step by step one.The reason for asking for step-by-step instruction is the fact, that I tired to create "CINNAMON" version so many times and every time there was something missing on my end My question is just sort of result of growing frustration due to my own inability to complete such a simple task successfully
Nevertheless I'll do give it a shot once again and will report back if all finished as expected. ps. Wish me luck.

Try my instructions again from post #16, and this time do not download any Slackware package in advance. I have updated liveslak (it's now at version 1.1.7) so that it will download the Slackware packages all by itself instead of aborting with an error. That way, I can be certain that a full Slackware repository is available locally. According to the error you posted, your locally mirrored Slackware repository was most likely missing the ./isolinux directory, which happens if you only download the package directory (./slackware64)
