use slackware 11.00 CD


I was getting the same error as you are getting. From the error I think you have got swaret.conf set up to be current (I may be wrong here). But try using slackware 11.00 CD rather than 10.2 CD. It may be that 10.2 CD had a very old version of Glibc. But if you are using current then make sure that you read ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.sla...nt/UPGRADE.TXT before upgrading. If you are using 2.6 kernel then change the replace the udev.new with udev (if you customized udev then make the appropriate changes).

Can't I just do a simple installpkg from disk 1 of the install disks for Slackware 10.2?
You should be able to. You said you're getting errors, but at what steps are you getting errors?

Also, by any chance, can you boot the computer into single mode?

Again, I can't even log into the system. I get the following login prompt

Code:
Welcome to Linux 2.4.31 (tty1)

I'm using 2.4 kernel, if this makes a difference...

Well I just tried to install the glibc files from an 11.0 disk and still got the same error...this is when I get it...when I type the following:

Code:
chroot /mnt /bin/bash -l
Code:
[error]
/bin/bash: /lib/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC-2.4' not found (required by /bin/bash
[/error]

I've googled around how would I run installpkg and install the various glibc stuff to the directories that it needed to be placed in? Not able to find anything...

thanks again

Your bash needs GLIBC-2.4 and you don't have it. It looks like you have upgraded bash to the slackware-current version. If you mount your hard drive to /mnt, after that 'ls /mnt/var/adm/packages/bash*' tells you the bash version. bash-3.1.017-i486-1 is the original version from 11.0 and bash-3.2.015-i486-1_slack11.0 is an alternative version from patches. bash-3.2.015-i486-1 and bash-3.2.009-i486-1 are slackware-current packages which don't work in slackware 11.0.

If you want to stay at slackware-11.0, reinstall bash. If you have bash from slackware-current, you have probably installed some other packages from slackware-current, too, so you might want to reinstall everything. (upgradepkg --install-new --reinstall slackware/*/*.tgz).

If you want to try slackware-current, upgrade everything to current. Read CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT.

You don't need to log in. From the LILO command prompt add the word single or the number 1 after the kernel name you select and that should boot you into single mode, if it is even possible.

First, if the installation *was* Slackware 10.2, then you need to reinstall 10.2's glibc, not 11.0's glibc.
Second, the problem with bash is mentioned in my HOWTO that Eric linked:
http://rlworkman.net/howtos/glibc-recovery

Code:
Note: there are some other packages that might need to be upgraded (downgraded,
      actually) while you're here; I'm not even going to attempt to list them,
      but for example, if you had already upgraded bash with the package from
      the newer Slackware version, you probably need to do the same thing as 
      above with the a/bash-*.tgz package on the cdrom.

UPDATE:

Here is where I'm at.

So my entention was to install Slackware 11.0 and do a clean install.

For some reason, I installed 11.0, and when I booted up I got my
old desktop, which really suprised me, along with all of my files/data ok, and a 2.6 kernel. I'm not sure what just happened here, can someone please explain?

And here are my new problems:

-no eth0 connection
-PS/2 mouse doesn't work

I'm thinking to solve the following problems, do the following:

-add module into 2.6 kernel that allows for eth0
-recreate xorg.conf file that fixes PS/2

thanks

I'm guessing that you didn't format whatever partition /home is on, and since a lot (all?) of your preferences are saved in your home directory, you got them back. Also, there are a couple of 2.6 kernels in the 11.0 install options. Again, a guess is that you chose one of those (and this might also affect your eth0 problem).

-no eth0 connection
If you installed the huge 2.6 kernel, you also need to install the kernel modules package. I'm guessing that the modules package didn't get installed, so there is no driver for your ethernet card. Posting the make/chipset might also help.

Have you run xorgconfig?

Another thing I've just noticed is that when I do a

Code:
lsmod
I don't see any modules loaded...why is this?

This is from the notes rworkman linked:

Quote:
Also, the kernel module packages for 2.6.x are not part of the
standard installation, so if you install using huge26.s or test26.s
kernel you'll have to install the corresponding kernel-modules package
when you're done. They can be found under /extra/linux-2.6.17.13/ (or
ISO number two under /extra/linux-2.6.17.13), or
/testing/packages/linux-2.6.18/ (or ISO number four under
/testing-2.6.18/packages/linux-2.6.18).
If lsmod isn't showing anything then either everything you need is compiled into the kernel or you didn't install the kernel modules package.

Ok, I just fixed this so X looks ok...

But my PS/2 mouse still doesn't work and the entries under my xorg.conf file looks just like the old xorg.conf file. So, this leads me to believe this is a modules issue, along with not having any eth0...

Can I mount Slackware 11.0 iso #2 and under /extra/linux-2.16.17.13 run the following:

Code:
installpkg kernel-modules-2.6.17.13-i486-1.tgz.sc
and this will add all of the modules that I need to fix

-ps/2
-eth0

and have modules listed when I issue the command:

Code:
lsmod
thanks

EDIT: I don't have my kernel experience, so I'm asking pretty basic questions, so please forgive.

You want to do this instead:

Quote:
installpkg kernel-modules-2.6.17.13-i486-1.tgz
note the tgz as opposed to the tgz.sc
Unless this was a typo you did not install any modules package.

Might be a stupid question, but at this point, don't want to take any chances.

Can I just run this from the cd and don't have to worry about setting any special commands/flags when issuing installpkg?

thanks
