I installed the Portable Slackware.

It seems very good.

I have a problem with the network. From the DHCP it always get an IP address in the range 10.0.2.x, even though my real network is on the net 192.168.0.x

How can I do to make it see the real network and so be able to go to the internet?

Anyway, great job!

Ok, actually I've advanced it a bit and added KVM for linux portables
Problems- although the net settings work great for me
Maybe not so for others? I don't know why??

Answer, maybe installing slack from scratch so it's setup for your machine
OR re-run the slack setup by putting in a slack disk, booting into setup menu
mounting, but not partitioning or formatting installed partition and then
re-run the net setup etc

anyway, slack's kinda big to be a portable
I suggest you try browserpuppy 4.8 and do frugal install
to a qemu-img of about 200MB+ with a swap partition and it runs fast too

I remastered browserpuppy 4.8 and made it into a puppy rescue cd/usb
( http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...embers-737444/ )

rescuepuppy runs fast in portable-qemu too

Here's new portable-qemu for linux/windows with KVM for linux too
( http://multidistro.com/downloads/iso...le-Qemu.tar.gz )

also check out options for net for qemu here
( http://www.qemu.org/qemu-doc.html#SEC27 )

Thanks for your reply.

I didn't solve the network problem yet.

Here I found some more information:

but no success yet.

And did you do a complete reinstall on your PC(s) or what?
It worked fine after installing on all of mine
portable-tinycore or portable-puppy are the best at snagging auto-dhcp , etc

Actually I found that I can browse the web from Portable Slackware.
It works out of the box.

What I cannot configure is a bridged network, so I can access my Portable Slackware box from other computers (including the host computer).

Do you have any how-to about it?

Oh, dude that's not my area there
I'm actually pretty ignorant on the bash/programming side
I can barely do "Hello World" in cursive

Did you do a full install of all the networking stuff in slack?
what wm are you using?
you must have a fast processor if your running kde etc

I would really like to know also, as I don't know much about networking.

network

Couldn't you just "netconfig" and reconfigure the network? Chances are the package is configured to the specification of the computer it was built on :??: Perhaps you should try building a script that forces a rerun of "netconfig" . http://www.slackbook.org/html/networ...TION-NETCONFIG ... anyway just my two cents.

That was my thought also, to Re-run the slack network setup using a iso, etc

would that work?

you shouldn't need to rerun it from an iso. It is built into the core utilities of Slackware. If the network.tgz packages are installed you should just be able to shell-out and sudo root then type "netconfig" and it will walk through the initial network configuration screens that were presented during installation (or just like).

How can I use the KQEMU accelerator?

Is the QEMU included in Portable Slackware compiled for using the kqemu kernel module? If so, what version?

eeee...I've had problems trying to get kqemu into it

kvm seems to work, and I can get portable-kqemu.exe for you...

Being that I'm not a coder of any sort, my ignorance of such things is high.
I can barely do "Hello World" in cursive, much less any kind of programming lang.

I originally got the qemu from billix-0.18, then found the qemu in tinycore-2.0
and stole it, which is probably what you have, maybe 9+ or 10?

I read somewhere that kqemu works best with qemu-8+, but not sure...

Also, there seems to be something in slackware that really slows it down?
even running fluxbox was about the same speed as kde, which means there's something in the background straining qemu.

for reference, a full hd install of dsl-4.4.10 boots in an amazing 35 sec
on portable-qemu! that's from boot to desktop.
it is the fastest, with dsl frugal 2nd at about 55sec.

tinycore and puppy each about 1min 10-20sec.

How long does your portable-slack take?

I think you should try to build slack specifically for emulation
remove any unnecessary items/apps and turn off most services too.

kqemu don't work very well for me on latest kernels
I just use kvm-qemu and it behaves well

Yep, that's why I added kvm to it.
safer too I think?

Not all processors are kvm capable. Run cat /proc/cpuinfo, and look at the flags section, if you see svm for AMD, or vmx for Intel - then you can use kvm.
