    Screenshots during Slackware 10 install


    Hi ! I am trying to asimilate a windows user to install Slackware. Anyway I need to take a screenshot of the Slackwre installation ... Anyone has an idea how to do that ? I know how to take a regular screenshot from the command line :
    chvt 7;sleep 2;import -display :0.0 -window root sshot1.png;chvt 1;

    But is it possible to acces one of the terminals and run this command ? Is the command available at install time ? Thanks !

    have you tried vmware?

    It can virtually "boot" the computer.

    The problem with using vmware for this type of project is cost.
    VMware would work just fine. In fact, it's what Grogan used when he wrote his tutorial for BitBender forums.
    The problem is I have no use for a virtual machine aside from a project like this and a single project doesn't justify the cost, IMO.
