    Contents of Slackware 10.1 CDs


    I'm posting this because I'm bored and curious. I recently downloaded 4 ISO files for Slackware 10.1, but I'm at work and I only brought 2 CDRs with me today. Does anyone know if the default install needs all 4 CDs, or can I just try the install tonight with the first two and then add additional packages with the other 2 later?

    Is that a "nope, it needs all 4" or a "nope, you can install without all 4"? Haha.

    You need only the FIRST 2 CDs to install Slackware.

    Tell me how it goes. I haven't updated yet but I am excited too. Just time issues. Busy week hell busy month. hehe
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    I'll certainly let you know. The last version I tried was 9.1, so I hope this one is worthy of a full number upgrade.

    I'm using it and I'm glad, so far!

    It's Slackware!

    Same install method.. no X, until you set it up!

    Hehehehe!

    Have Fun, Moe!
