Slackware-current ISO(s)
 
I am aware of the procedure to make the single disc version of -current when it was only one disc, what changes need to be made in order to put -current on 2 ISO's? I see some out there, but it doesnt say how to make them. I know Kde and gnome are the only two things on the other disc other than the live thing..

To make a bootable Slackware install CD, get into the top level Slackware directory
(The one with ChangeLog.txt in it) and issue a command like this to build the ISO image in /tmp:

mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-x ./bootdisks \
-x ./extra \
-x ./slackware/gnome \
-x ./pasture \
-x ./rootdisks \
-x ./source \
-x ./zipslack \
-hide-rr-moved \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 32 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .

Then use 'cdrecord' to burn it. (See 'man cdrecord')

Notice that to fit the install image on one CD, you must exclude GNOME:

-x ./slackware/gnome \

or exclude KDE:

-x ./slackware/kde \
-x ./slackware/kdei \

or, leave them both off:

-x ./slackware/gnome \
-x ./slackware/kde \
-x ./slackware/kdei \

or, leave off the KDEI series (KDE translations):

-x ./slackware/kdei \

You decide. :-)
These are instructions for making a current ISO from http://zuul.slackware.biz/

Yeah, see... I said I already knew how to do that and have been doing it for years... :-P The thing is they split it to 2 cd's now and that won't work anymore. So how do I go about the 2cd version?

Just make one excluding KDE and gnome, and then make one excluding everything but KDE and gnome.

Is it going to pick that up and ask for the second CD with kde/gnome on it however? I suppose I could make the one first cd and installpkg the rest later, I don't use gnome or kde either.

ponds 06-12-2004 10:08 AM

Yes.

Will it work if I use a dvd? And what would it look like?

ponds 06-13-2004 11:39 AM

You can just burn everything to one DVD with the script posted above i believe.

As a side point, this is how the official CDs work I believe. Ever inserted the CD 2 first by accident? It seemed to start up setup fine before I realised there were no slackware packages available apart from Gnome/KDE - quick swap of the CDs and everything was well again - never really use CD2 apart from as a tea coaster :)
