I have been trying to install slackware 12 from usbboot.img (kernel 126.96.36.199)
With huge.s at boot (oldie) I end up with a non working NE 2000 pcmcia networking card;
Under Slack 13:
(slackware 13 (188.8.131.52) gives error at boot with this PC
and hangs dramatically.)
-well let's try with a newer PC if this slack 13 pendriev works
with the slack 13, at the source media choice, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...8&d=1252594587
slackware mount.nfs requested nfs version or transport protocol is not supported
mount -r -t nfs IP:/home/slack13.iso /server
The NFS server is not slack, but well it shall work anyhow
since //samba/public requires a password, it is not possible
mount : unknown filesystem type "smbfs"
mount -t smbfs -o username=<name>,password=<passwd> //sambashare /mountpoint
OK so now solution. One remove the pendrive, and try to copy slack13.iso on it... -oups mounting vfat is not working of the usbboot.img, since not liked by linux (attached)
So which solution is there left?
network, probing all modules, then get success: foudn card using 3c59x protocal -- modules loaded.
here there is a http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/
so typing :
although packages.txt is there
is saying that no PAcakges.txt found
it seems that ping results in :
ping : bad port spec "http://www.google.com" althougth I could ifconfig eth0 with right IP, and ping into my server box (intranet).
I tried dhclient but not working.
Even better now, you get the iso slack13 cd1 and put it on a pendrive, then :
mount -t iso9660 -o loop slack13d1.iso /cdrom
you get it mounted, and ls gives right things, so cdrom available.
Into source media, select the install from a slacware cd with auto, and it finds nothing. ok it is not a cd
so from hard drive : forget because one cannot mount the ISO file
and finally if one add : /cdrom to pre-mounted directory, it will end up sayying that there is nothing in it
So, it did not work at all
