Do I need the Four ISO image to install Slackware?


Hi all,

Do I need to burn the 4 ISO image of Slackware for installation? In fact I have only
2 CD RW, and I wonder if I manage the install with only 2 iso files...

Regards, Palm

You only really need disc install-d1 to get it running. If you want kde and a few other non-essential things you will need install-d2. The other two discs (source-d3 and source-d4) contain the source files used, so are not really needed unless you want to recompile stuff.

It should be noted that the 2.6 kernel is included on CD2. It can, however, be downloaded separately on the Slackware package browser.

First time?

I wouldn't recommend slackware if this is your first distro of linux. How ever I do not recall anything too difficult when installing the kernal as long. It should automatically install the package.

Indeed - while you should learn to recompile your kernel at a later point, there are pre-compiled kernel packages; you can simply install the kernel components found here.
I don't remember how it behaves - you will probably have to add the option to boot to the new kernel with LiLo.
@ everybody else: Remind me?

2.6 kernel in SW10.2 install

Palm2 U can choose test26.s(2.6.13) kernel during install(and remember later in install to install kernel from CD2) then u will need 2.6.13 modules and alsa driver(if u want) fron 2.6.13 directory on CD2 since install will continue with 2.4.31 modules.
The test26.s kernel is large so wont fit on boot floppy. But u can use it and later(wn u have more experience) use its config file wn u install newer trimmer kernel. Happy Slacking.
