Please help with Slackware installation


I finished Slackware installation. It said Installation complete. However, I didn't ask it to create a startup usb disk and chose the skip option. I didn't choose for it to setup lilo.

Now I booted into my arch linux partition and chrooted into the slackware partition. Now I can't run any commands like grub-install, liloconfig or anything. Not even installpkg.

What can I do in this situation?

Hi, welcome to Slack. Don't know if you are aware but LQ has separate forums for many distros, Slack being one of them. Whenever I've had questions about Slackware the good guys/girls there have always put me right.
