Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Rsynced the latest current this morning and created a full install using usbimg2disk.sh. The installation drops out about 5 seconds after selecting packages with the message that installation is complete but nothing has been done. The slakckware tree seems to be present on the USB drive ( ~ 2.2G ) and I've tried a full install and using tagfiles.
Where are your sources? I've found the 5 second install occurs when the installer *finds* the source tree but for some reason doesn't dig deeper, more often-than-not when installing from another partition, but sometimes also with an nfs mount, and perhaps even ftp (not too sure tho').
So, perhaps, try an install from a different mirror....

Yeah, but that is solved now AFAIK, adding option ' --output-separator "#"' to the main dialog of SeTPKG and setpkg. Not all" dialog --checklist" needed a fix. Or do I miss something?
PS To be accurate setup.services is not present in the installer. It is called from the installer after packages' installation and can be called as well in an installed system (usually by pkgtool, also shipped in pkgtools package).
