if you are going to install slackware that way, it's better for you to install mandriva!!!
What Alien_Hominid said. Shilo is pretty knowledgeable on Slackware and doing a full install is good advice for someone who is new - they can always remove things when they realise they don't need them. In fact, that tends to be good advice for any distro. Install the whole thing and as and when you learn enough you can start to whittle away your install.

Don't you think you're a bit ridiculous?

Yes tnx indeed. I am a newbie, but it helped me very much. BUT......I obviously did something wrong somewhere at the road. Everything went fine, until I messed with that /boot/*.64 shit, or, with the part where you have to remove software.
first I could not get a terminal to start, or other apps. rebooted, but now it hangs during the fase that one should see the dropline Gnome image. Anyone has any ideas how to dela with this mess?

furthermore I tried to do that clean thing, the one with .new replacing files. Ho do you remove and rename these files?

tnx guys!

My suggestion: install Slackware 10.2, run dropline-installer, install-full. If you want current, use any of these package managers (swaret, slackpkg, slapt-get), but blacklist kernel packages, alsa, aaa_libs and maybe if you want X11.

What do you mean online? Do you mean using swaret? Which version do you want to upgrade to?
BTW, you better read this: ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....2/UPGRADE.TXT
