My german Slackware Tutorial
Hi everybody,
I am a parttime writer for a bunch of german Linux magazines and I realized that some of my articles might add up to a good Slackware Tutorial. I added some screenshots and glued some of the articles together. In the future I will try to keep it updated and add more stuff. So maybe this will turn into a documentation project at some point. Since I felt that a german newbie tutorial for Slackware is missing. This might be of interest to some of the german folks around here. I know it won't be of much use for most international users but I thought I might just post it here, since it's a good forum for Slackware and some germans might stumble over it. ;-)

Download here:
(no 5points yet, so I guess you have to copy/paste)

Here's what's in the Tutorial so far:
- Slackware installation / HD-partitioning
- X-Setup and basic use of an editor
- Changing the default runlevel
- Dialup Connection using Roaring Penguin
- Dropline Gnome installation and setup
- Printer configuration using cups
- pkgtool program installations
- Nvidia Binary Driver setup
- GPU-Overclocking using nvclock and yanc
- An interview with Todd from Dropline Gnome

Here's what I want to add in the near future:
Kernel compile and upgrade
giFT setup
modules.conf and startup scripts explained
more tuning stuff, such as hparm etc.

Any ideas? Feedback? Help? Translations?
Thank you...

how about using adsl-setup & netconfig ?

Lispy 09-15-2004 08:19 AM

As far as I know adsl-setup doesnt work well for common users, and it doesnt provide a graphical interface. As I am trying to write a newbie tutorial I thought I might stick with roaring penguin.

netsetup could be a part of a more detailed description of all the Slackware adminscripts. I wanted to add more stuff about the startup scripts as well. I am also planning to describe the package creation process in the future...

How about how to set the localization to support German Language?

e.g. install german fonts

Thank you. I covered this already. The KDEI packages have all the support for german and Gnome can be easily localized by choosing the right language at the gdm-login. This works surprisingly good. My mom uses it and has no problems at all. Even with the and all other special letters:
