Athlon runs Slack 10.2 well, can't install 12.1
I've been a long time user of Slackware, first started using it at version v2.0 and have been watching it grow and continue gather the following it has today.
Well my Athlon system has been a faithful machine, for may years and it would be a shame to have to leave it only running Slackware 10.2.
Athlon 1000 MHz
768 Mb RAM
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-7IXE4
When booting from disc 1, and passing huge.s at the boot prompt, I get a 'not enough memory' error. Also tried the smp kernel with the same result.
So, has anyone got a way that I can shoehorn this massive 12.1 kernel into my machine ?
Any advice would be welcome.
Did you try just to hit <Enter> at the boot prompt ?
The kernel choice comes up again ( late in the install
"huge.smp" is 4.2 MB
I'm running 12.1 on my desktop with 512 MB RAM, so 768 shouldn't pose any problem.
Be sure to read the other 12.1 .txt files that are available on the install cd.
