is the second ISO image of slackware 14.2 absolutely necessary?


Hi: is the second ISO image of slackware 14.2 absolutely necessary? I must install through an USB stick and it's the only I have. But suppose I have two of them. What do I do when the installer asks for the second disk? I simply insert the second stick?

EDIT: I forgot there's a DVD image.

I'm not sure if there's anything that documents what package series are on what discs. I will say that 700MB won't hold a lot of packages and probably doesn't have a lot of packages that many would deem as required (just the a/ series is 608MB, so you'd like miss most or all of the ap/ and n/ series which are pretty important for many users). I think the only reason they're still included is because some 32bit machines might not have dvd drives, but nowadays, that's pretty unlikely. If you have the ability, you really should grab the dvd iso, as that has everything you need. You don't need the source package since all source can be grabbed from nearby mirrors.

Allright, thanks. By the way, why isn't the current version in Index of /slackware/slackware-iso (slackware dot com site)?

As a side note, you can always use the usbboot.img, write to a small USB stick or SD Card and use that to launch an HTTP/FTP installation. Just be sure to pick a Slackware mirror close to your location.

Read the README_USB.TXT for directions on copying to the external media.

Just saying: Slackware 32bit has hard times with 64bit UEFI, and I talk about the issues on booting it.

And no, is not the Slackware fault.

There's a dvd iso in the iso directories as well as the multi-disc isos. It's down towards the botom.

The current iso is not provided by Pat, but instead by Eric Hameleers (Alien Bob). Eric has a script that generates them automatically when the changelog is changed.
