Wink Question about livecd


Hello Everyone,

I made a Slackware 14.1 livecd. I tested and it boots up on my computer however there is no install to the hard drive option. Any one have any idea how to add a install to hard disc option?

Hi,

What do you mean you made a Slackware LiveCD? You burned the install DVD ISO image to DVD media? If so you would be getting the boot screen with information as to what can be done. If you do not need to pass any parameter(s) and want to use the default kernel then just press return to boot to the install. Once you boot you will be given a install screen with information on what can be done. If your satisfied with your storage media then just press <return> again. You would then type 'setup' (without ticks) at the Slackware prompt to go to the setup screen.

You can look at: Slackware Doc Project to get helpful install information.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Hello Onebuck,

What i mean is i made a disc that boots up to the desktop with the operating system being installed
to the hard drive. What i need to know is how i can make an installer from the livecd desktop so i can
install it to the hard drive.

Hi,

Where did you get the Slackware LiveDVD? There are Slackware derivatives like Slax & Salix which some versions are Live. No Slackware LiveDVD that I am aware of. Slackware64 14.1 Install DVD ISO image is available for download that can be burnt to a DVD as a image that would be used to install Slackware64 14.1. Not a LiveDVD but a boot-able install DVD for a Slackware64 installation.

Hello Onebuck,

I had downloaded Slackware 14.1 64bit from http://www.slackware.com/ and install it to my harddrive. Then after that i follow the instructions on how to make a livecd from here.

Those instructions are written on the same page as where you learnt how to create the live CD: http://slackware-live.tuxfamily.org/-Documentation-

So you are creating the Live system from an install using instructions from http://slackware-live.tuxfamily.org/-Documentation-

Totally different story there on how to generate a Live system. Now I understand what you originally are asking. On the linked site you should move down on the page to 'Live system installation' for detailed instructions on how to install using the 'Live' media.
