A trip down memory lane....

In this video I'm going to install Slackware 1.1.2 on an old 386SX40 using floppies. The goal is to get the base linux installed, along with networking and X support.
Not me, but the guy who made the video.

All hail @upnort!

Circa 1992. That was definitely a ways back down the lane.

I love how much the Slackware installation process *hasn't* changed over the years. Those screens look very familiar. ;-)

Ncurses. If I booted a Slack .iso and didn't see that, I'd think something was amiss.

That's okay -- often I'm accused of not getting out much either.

a single board computer could fit in there

I've got an old tangerine imac clamshell -- there's something rugged and beastly about it's durability; and I had an old version of powerpc ported slackware (I think it had slackintosh 10) running on it--I used to use it as a wireless payment station at a festival, so peeps could donate, but nobody would miss it if it walked off... And, because I seem to be a magnet for old computers that are given to me and pile up in old computer closets: For a trip down memory lane, I thought about tricking out some of the classier ones with Orange Pis! Imagine one of those old colorful imacs, with it's huge motherboard gutted, replaced by a small single-board computer! Or the newer flat paneled ones: no need to buy a case for your next raspberry/orange pi; just stick it in an old imac!

Just a suggestion for those who have time for floppy installs on old 386s: Armed Slack in the old cases with build-in displays!

Since upnort beat me with the link that I gave, all this goodness should be in his thread versus mine: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-a-4175669563/

(It's not that I don't appreciate your posts here, but fair is fair.)
