Tutoriale Online The Setup Program

Posted by ascultradio on September 4, 2009

The Setup Program :

The Slackware Linux installation program is a text-based, menu-driven program that’s easy to use. After you have defined your partitions, exit fdisk and start the setup program by typing setup at the prompt.

# setup

The setup program is quite easy to use and provides help throughout. Here’s an explanation of what the various main menu options do.

HELP

Displays the Slackware Setup HELP file. This option is recommended for new users and even experienced users. It offers the latest information about the Slackware Linux distribution.
KEYMAP

Allows you to remap your keyboard if you need to.
ADDSWAP

Setup your swap partition(s).
TARGET

Selects the target directory. Most of the time this is /, but sometimes it is something else. This option scans for partitions and allows you to format them as well.
SOURCE

Selects the source media for the Slackware Linux distribution. You can install from another hard disk partition, floppy disks, an NFS mount, a pre-mounted directory, or from CD-ROM.
SELECT

This is where you pick which series you want to install. A checklist is displayed with a description for each series. You check the series that you want to install.
INSTALL

Installs the selected series to the target directory. You are given several prompting options. Each is geared towards different levels of experience. Below is a listing of the different prompting options.

full Install everything (up to 3.5GB of software)
newbie Use verbose prompting (and follow tagfiles)
menu Choose groups of packages from interactive menus
expert Choose individual packages from interactive menus
custom Use custom tagfiles in the package directories
tagpath Use tagfiles in the package directories

An option is also given to display the prompt mode help file, which may not be a bad idea if you don’t understand the prompting modes.

CONFIGURE

This option takes you through the most important of the configuration process. That is, the root password, LILO configuration, network configuration (using netconfig), kernel installation, X setup, timezone, and a few other settings. You may want to take a look at the Configuration Page for some additional help.
PKGTOOL

Runs the Slackware Pkgtool program for managing packages. This is explained in more detail on the Package Management Page.
EXIT

Exits the setup program.

After installing Slackware Linux and exiting the setup program, you can issue the shutdown -r now command to reboot your new Slackware system. Don’t forget to remove the diskette from the drive though.
