If it is in ISO form the easiest way is to burn it to a cd-rom (an ISO is a disk image)

The easiest way to install dropline (best desktop ever ) is this:

wget http://www.dropline.net/gnome/files/...8-i686-2dl.tgz

(this will download the dropline-install package)

then (as root or using sudo, do the following):

installpkg dropline-installer-2.4.8-i686-2dl.tgz

then (again, as root or using sudo):

dropline-installer

Hi cyberliche,


Tried that, but the dropline-installer complains it hasn't perl installed.
What is the easiest way to install perl???
Sorry for the silly question.

Thanks in advance...

I'm pretty suprised that perl isn't installed.

Type
Code:
which perl
at the command prompt and see if it returns anything. If so, you have a problem, being that perl is installed and the OS isn't finding it. If not you can install it from the cd or download it from here:
http://slackware.com/pb/download.php...l-5.8.4-i486-3
and install it (as root) using installpkg package name
