Episode 41 Slackware 12 part 2

Posted in Slackware at 8:26 am by ewlabonte

Today I’ll be doing the follow-up to my initial Slackware 12 installation. I’ll get Slackware working with my wireless card using wifi-radar, and I’ll explore the various ways of getting packages installed on Slackware. I’ll explore using precompiled packages from LinuxPackages.net and Slacky, I’ll use checkinstall together with compiling from source code in order to create Slackware packages and I’ll use the slackbuild scripts at slackbuild.org to create and install slack packages.

Episode 40 Slackware 12 part 1

Posted in Slackware at 10:10 pm by ewlabonte

This episode I install Slackware 12 on an Acer laptop. I get the main system installed along with kde, and I install the synaptics touchpad driver. I’m anticipating investigating the different ways to install software on Slackware, especially the new Slackbuild website. Ben had to take this week off. He will follow up his Sabayon installation either next week of the week after.
