Slackware current install DVD broken?
 
Rsynced the latest current this evening (20130816) and tried to created a full install. The installation stops after selecting full or terse install with the message insert the next disk or cancel. This continues until I cancel or quit.

My -current DVD is a bit older, it has the 3.10.5 kernel on it. I used it today to put a clean install on my netbook, and then upgraded to 3.10.7. Maybe something changed in the latest ISO? Did your MD5 sum check out?

Built an ISO image and tried installing in VirtualBox, the installer seems broken. I tried also on a spare partition on a laptop, booting via the usbboot.img, pre-mounting a directory with the slackware packages and choosing to install everything and that failed too.

yes, it's confirmed to be broken due to changes in dialog in the meantime

see PV's post on other thread
