    Skipped network install, can I redo it?


    Hi,

    is it possible to run just the Network installation part of the Slackware 10.1 setup again?
    I'm a total but eager one-day newbie and really enjoying my SW Linux and would love to go online, but because I did not have any network information I skipped the network install.
    Tried manual installation but I cannot find init.d in /etc/rc.d/ and I cannot therefore stop the network, if there is one active anyway.

    Hope someone can help, thanks a lot in advance!

    Marinus.

    go into the cli and get into the root account and type pkgtool and then you should have an option in there to reinstall network stuff i believe. i would check but i dont have slackware installed at this moment

    Hi big_k105,

    thanks! It might work, will try after a couple of other tasks ahead.

    cli = command line right??

    Right! Stands for Command Line Interface IIRC
