Cool Where does SETUP live?

Hi forum,

I'm setting up Slackware 10.0 for testing purposes.
My system is a laptop with a large hd. I am multibooting between various distro's, w2k and xp(god forbid..)

I've setup slackware from CD's, and received various errors during file installation.
Nevertheless the system boots into slackware allright.
Unfortunately I can't do very much poking around, probably due to files that have failed to install.

How can I run setup from the command line and have it install the missing or broken files? (I have a list)

X won't start either.

Thanks for your help!!

Use pkgtool to look through the list of installed packages. Or alternatively you can ls /var/log/packages/installed

Once I had an error when installing slack10.2. I booted from cd1, did fdisk, started setup, but after a while (when installing packages) errors started to appear - saying something like 'no disk space'. So unfortunatly no (only few of the base) packages were installed, although I had my / partition 5GB large. I wondered how was that supposed to apear? The solution was - restarting the box after doing fdisk. I had always installed slackware successfully without need in restart, but this case was the one
