Zenwalk install from a directory
 
I'm installing zenwalk 7 open from a 30 gig USB stick. I get to the point where I'm asked to enter the zenwalk dir to install. The wiki says just type /zenwalk and it'll work. But it didn't work. zenwalk dir is on my USB, but I can't access the USB. I've tried where it's located at (dev/sdb1 or dev/sdc1, can't remember, got it from the partitioning page) but it doesn't work.

How do I access the zenwalk dir on my USB stick? The stick is the only USB device plugged in.

1. create a zenwalk directory.
Quote:

mkdir /zenwalk
2.mount your usb
Quote:

mount /dev/sdb1 /zenwalk
3.continue with installation.

I figured out a way. I let the auto installed make the partitions on the drive, format it, then I backed out, went to exit and went to command prompt. From there I made a directory to mount the USB and a directory for zenwalk on my C:. then I copied the stuff from zenwalk (cp -R /usb/zenwalk/* /zenwalk), went back to the install with setup command. Then I go install. The install will auto detect the created swap partition, and will ask you to select which partition. Select your biggest partition, and the install will work.

Doing it just from the USB for some reason I got a scroll of text, then it said it was done, and it wasn't.

tl;dr I fixed it


Now I have another question. My console button on my bottom bar isn't working at all, for any of my users. I can alt+f2 and xterm, but xterm doesn't have the capability to copy and past

So, how does one get back into the installation? Because rebooting obviously unmounts the sdb drive.
