Unhappy Slackware 14.2 full installation finish in 5 sec


I have Lenovo ideapad 320s and I would like to install Slackware 14.2 and I manage everything to moment where I have to select install installation type and I am selecting FULL and then start installing but after 5-10sec installation is done and nothing is installed but I am getting message ďyou can reboot now, installation completeĒ. What is wrong? I can not find any hint in google.

Did you partition your drive correctly? How much space did you leave for root? A full install needs 9+GB but I would give it about three times that, My / is ~30GB.

If Lysanderís tip doesnít send you in the right direction, then you might want to close this thread and ask on the Slackware forum in LQ. But read the Slackware Beginnerís Guide and Installation guide first.

I saw this specific point addressed once in my reading. Itís there somewhere, I just canít recall where.

So I want to have only one system on my laptop so I set 104gb for “/“ partition 14gb (I know I can less) for swap and I add efi system partition 140MB, cause Slackware setup warning me that I have to do it.


TheTKS if that is the wrong forum sure I will close it and add post I Slackware one. But I think my isssue is more related to my laptop then to system. I follow installation instruction which I found on wiki page.

I suggest you read the gentoo amd64 handbook for example to learn the basics.

these basics are needed for most installations, also for slackware. without the basics you are lost.

i installed slackwar half year ago. the installer needs definitely some improvements. also the config files are not according to FHS.

I'm quite certain after reading the gentoo handbook and looking up unknown things your slackware installation should finish.

Slackware 14.2 full installation finish in 5 sec , seen that and thought someone has themselves a system with really really really really really fast through put. Had to check this thread out to see what it was. I was disappointed, but to the issue at hand.

As others have indicated, I'd check the mount point to where it is being installed to. Is it even there, and is it big enough to contain the full package?

with a clean install on a HDD that I have, and want to change it sizes to whatever I want. With Slack I use the cfdisk command before going into the setup command.

delete, repartition, then write it out to the disk, then go into setup. making sure I remember the drive addresses. as stated 30GB for root without a home. I've gone a small as 15 but with 3rd parties I've found myself having to move my partitions over to give root / more room to play with.

I too as some not all, use a separate / and /home on two different partitions. Hence the 30GB min for root.

Note: this too can be done with a HDD that already has something on it, in a different partition, using cfdisk, because I can see what I am doing better, then just using fdisk, ie.. I got Windows and another OS installed, 3 total at this moment.

just cfdisk your partitions, make sure you select write before exiting cfdisk, or the changes will not take place, then write down all of the /dev/sdax if you have to, so you'll know where to tell Slack where to mount in the install section part of where to mount. format or not format move on to the next thing.

its not too hard, so what if it takes 2 or 3 times until you figure it out.
