slackware10 one cd only install
 
Ok I've checked through google, searched the forums here (and many others too!) and have yet to find out a soultion to my problem so I bring it to the last place of hope for this issue, I've been trying to make a slackware 10 install cd on only one cd as I don't want gnome or kdei packages among many others (with all the packages and othe files needed for the install cd its only 645mb) I get the cd to boot go through all the options till the package selection go through those steps and then I'm asked for a second cd (not one package is actually installed) why does this happen? (had it not been for rwcds I would be introuble lol also I'm not trying to make a dvd cd as I don't have a dvd burner or reader anymore and I would like to keep it on a normal 700mb cd) I do know that it is possiable to make a slack install cd only requiering one but have yet been able to figure out how to try to get it to not ask for a second cd, I've been through the setpkg file, tagfiles even the initrd.img (the installer img) in the iso directory and have yet to find a solution. All the help given would be greatly appreaciated as this has plagued me for the last few weeks.
again no dvdbootable cds, and do NOT want to do a 2cd set one cd only is the goal thanks.

Can't you hit "cancel" when it asks for another CD?

(PS: What's that system monitor on you desktop?)

I'm pretty sure I tried that out but I'll give it a quick check in a few mins and see what happens also in that particular screen in my sig (and its ooooooolddd lol I gotta update it) would be superkaramba with the sysmonitor them or MyKaramba (its actually the same thing with only a slight change).

quick reply to your suggestion, it skiped over to configuring the "installed" system so I checked it out and it had'nt worked..

:confused:
i think you are doing something wrong in the instalation menus, make sure the Kde, gnome, and Kdei boxes are unselected in the first packege selection menu, and later do a expert setup. I only have slackware 10.0 cd-1 and I never had trouble instaling it.

Yes, you can choose which packages to be installed on your system. Unselect the GNOME and KDE packages so that it wont ask for the Disc 2 .

I'll try that out when I get home and let you know if that solves the problem thanks.

Unfourtantly after trying that (unselecting gnome kdei however not kde itself is that the issue?) it asked for the second cd.

d00msweek 02-03-2005 03:25 PM

The GNOME, KDEI, and KDE packages are found on the Disc 2. If you select them then the installer asks for the Disc 2. Did you really unselect them ?

Ok so kde is on disc two (again don't care about kdei) that explains a lot even though I have kde (not kdei) on the same cd that does help out the next thing I have to ask is how do I put kde on the same disc and have it detect it or what not on that disc?

here is how i do it, install slackware cd 1 without kde, kdei, and gnome, setup the internet, download slackpkg (/extra folder in any slackare site), and use slackpkg to download only the kde/gnome packages you want (most packages are small).
