Slackware on ASUS Zenbook UX303 L

Posted 10-28-2015 at 08:38 AM by Tonus

As I stated in my first post, dealing with Debian testing with apt-get and aptitude made me mess quite everything... Thinking all this automation wasn't for me, I recalled Slackware had a -current flavor that might by more up to date than stable release.

I decided to make the switch.

First problem, I had no more usb stick available... But fortunately, grub2 offers the hability to boot straight from an iso image :

- Edit
Code:
/etc/grub.d/40_custom
- add at the end
Code:
menuentry "Slackware 14.1 ISO" {
        insmod loopback
        insmod iso9660
        set isofile="/slackware64-14.1-install-dvd.iso"
        loopback loop (hd0,10)$isofile
        linux (loop)/kernels/huge.s/bzImage load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw printk.time=0 SLACK_KERNEL=huge.s
        initrd (loop)/isolinux/initrd.img
        }
- Note that my iso file is in no directory on (hd0,10) which is /dev/sda10

- Save changes with, as root
Code:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
- Before booting on the install iso, you might want to download recent kernel sources to build after install

Usefull guide to build your kernel from Alien BOB's wiki pages :http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...kernelbuilding

Note that some options are for 32-bits kernel.

I also suggest, starting from a huge kernel, to use
Code:
make olddefconfig
.
