Slackware 8.0 Install


I am currently trying to install Slackware 8.0 and have hit a wall of sorts.

After running fdsk to set up my 20GB drive with the following specd:

/ 300MB
swap 500MB
/home 1000MB
/tmp 100MB
/usr Rest of disk

I run out of room on one of my partitions when I install a minimal set of packages.

If anyone has accomplished this feat, I would really like to know if my partitions are all wrong or what? I ran df after the error and I dont see where excatly I am running out of space. I thought you could keep the / , /home , /var and /tmp partitions relatively small.

Any help would be appreciated.

300mb for root is way too small for a distro like slack 8. Your swap is ok but make more room for root, home and tmp if you want to burn cd's.

Okay.
I set my / partition to 2000MB (probably overkill) and it worked fine. Oddly though, I was never prompted to set up X. Anyway, the system runs just fine.

Thanks for the help Aussie.
