Onebuck,

could you underline/bold the audio group under the section for adding users to groups. Like plugdev, it is a group that newbies seem to miss a lot. It is especially confusing for users who see it working in runlevel 3 (because of the CONSOLE_GROUPS in /etc/login.defs), but don't see it working in runlevel 4.

Also, you might want to add the lp group to that list since udev now uses it in Slackware 12.1 for printing.

Hi,

Daedra
's, post for 'Beautiful Fonts in 12.1' is a post that everyone should look at. Good reference!

The 'The Perfect Desktop - Slackware 12' is a good install example that may assist in the installing of SlackwareŽ 12.1.

I have listed these links in 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

This is a must-read post so I will probably add it to mi sig ;-)

All i can think of is
Code:
links
for it's ability to cruise over the filesystem with the four arrow keys ;-)

I also enable this on mc by default (LYNKS like motion in [F9]->Options->Configuration )

my 2cents...

I have downloaded the Slackware 12.1 DVD. Is there a way to install it without burning it?

Yes. When you install Slackware, the setup utility asks for the source:
Code:
SOURCE displays a menu offering the choice of installation from CD-ROM, a
hard drive partition, NFS, HTTP/FTP, or a directory (mounted manually).

No! Sorry for not being clear.
I have Gentoo installed (and I have a live CD also). I have downloaded Slackware DVD on a partition and I want to install it over Gentoo. The question that I have is, is there a way to get to the setup program without booting into Slackware?

You can install Slackware using an existing patrtition with all the packages if you do not want to burn a DVD.
But you still need to boot into the installer. You can use the USB installer image that fits on a stick to boot, or setup a PXE server.
You can not start the setup from within Gentoo or any other distro.

if you downloaded an iso image instead of files for the dvd then you will have to mount it as a loop device so you can access the files.

Hi! I solved my problem by using they USB image, which had huge26.s kernel. After that I mounted the ISO as loop and installed Slackware 12.1 flawlessly.

Hi,

Daedra & Dugan have done some great work for Beautiful fonts within Slackware 12.1. I also must point out the contributions by other posters within the thread. This is how it's supposed to work within a forum.

This is a must read thread for anyone who wants a beautiful font(s) for the Slackware 12.1. A lot of the work is already done for you!

Hi,

'SlackwareŽ 12.2 Release Announcement'!

You can now download SlackwareŽ 12.2 from several mirrors. I suggest that you look at using the SlackwareŽ 12.2 torrents. Please seed as long as you can, this will help all.

I have included new 'SlackwareŽ 12.2' links in 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Goto the 'SlackwareŽ store' now to order SlackwareŽ 12.2. Please be patient as the release has just been made.

EDIT: Be sure to check the md5sum. If you downloaded the dvd iso then be sure to check the md5sum for the original iso. From the cli;

Code:
~#cd /downloadisolocation      #dvdiso.iso dvdiso.md5 

~#md5sum -c dvdiso.md5       #substitute the correct name to check
If the iso md5 is ok then you should try 'CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning''.

This way you will know if the burn was OK! This will check the download iso with the known md5sum that you also get with the iso.

Happy Slacking!

Hi,

Now that the dust is settling!

A lot of new SlackwareŽ users are having difficulty with network setup(s). I would suggest that they look at Alien_Bob's 'Configuring your network in SlackwareŽ'. "This article is intended as a reference guide to network card configuration in SlackwareŽ." A very useful wiki!

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Cool I have a question.

I installed slackware 12.2...etc.

I log in as root and everything is fine.
I run the set command and it returns the standard info.
However there is no profile for root in the root directory.
Where does it get all the info returned in the set command?

Thanks,
MikeG
