Installing Slackware64-current, menu select option working?
 
Just updated my local file tree to the latest (Sept 9, 2014) Slackware64-current. And after putting it on a usb stick (using usbimg2disk) and running setup; at the Prompting menu, selecting install everything works. But when selecting the menu option to selectively install packages, after selecting packages, Setup zooms through install without installing packages and network setup.

I seem to recall an earlier current had a similar issue and was corrected with an updated initrd.img file.

Anyone else encountering the same?

The link below is to a short thread where I used an incorrect path to the installation files. Probably not your problem but doesn't hurt to check.

The updates to slackware64-current (Sept 13, 2013) have also updated all maketag maketag.ex and tagfile files in the slackware64 directory tree. I can now use menu select when installing.

Marking this as solved.
