Slackware 10.2 Install

April 20, 2006 at 11:54 am Leave a comment

Slackware 10.2 is pretty primitive compared to the other distro I have seen. The installer actually boots to a command line. After reading the instructions on screen, I tried using fdisk but find it different than the Windows fdisk. It was easier to use the alternate program cfdisk.

During install, there is an option to write to mbr, so it will clear previous mbr installs if your hard disk has a previous distro. The default windows manager appears to be KDE. I did not install the KDE International package. I figure that the only international app I'll use is probably Firefox and that is not a KDE application. Install was fairly uneventful.

Unlike other distros, slackware 10.2 appears to boot up to a command line. You have to startx to start the windows manager.
