Slackware installer (SARPi/FatDog, Daves Collective) didn't work for me on the Raspberry Pi I got
from RS in October 2013. R-Pi_Troubleshooting
possibly you have a Rpi from Micron. Take a good look at the processor if it says M with an orbit around it. Using the lastest software ( >= sept 2013 ) will solve your problem
As all the Slackware installers are < sept 2013, I followed the howto on docs.slackware.com
I took a SD with the lastest Raspbian, I kept the boot partition and replaced everything but /lib/modules
and /lib/firmware on the root partition with the contents of Slackware ARM 14.1 minirootfs
I added the "ro" to the end of /boot/cmdline.txt, commented-out s0 in /etc/inittab and edited /etc/fstab:
/dev/mmcblk0p2 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat fmask=177,dmask=077 1 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
Now I have a working Slackware 14.1 miniroot on Raspbian kernel. (I also added slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-11
so that I can add further packages easily, together with gnupg-1.4.15-arm-1 and mpfr-3.1.2-arm-1 that
it requires... but that's not the point of this story).
I have not found the instructions to create Slackware installer for RPi (I did not do too much searching).
I am ready to try / test an updated version of the installer that would work on the lastest Rpis.
Credits to FatDog :-), cheers to *
