    Slackware and virtualbox packages


    Hi folks,

    CPU - AMD Athlon64 X2 3800
    HD - SATA 160G
    RAM - 2G dual channel
    Broadband - 6M


    I'm prepared to install Slackware and aware that its latest version is Slackware-12.0. Whether download "Slackware 12.0 DVD ISO (everything)" on;

    The Slackware Linux Project: Get Slack
    ???

    Tks.


    I'm going to run Slackware on a Virtual Machine, "VirtualBox";

    Downloads - VirtualBox

    I have no idea to download which package. Pls shed me some light. OR "VirtualBox" is already on Slackware port? Tks.

    If you have fast connection then get dvd
    dvd contains packages + source files

    But you won't be needing source files

    so you can skip dvd download and just download first 3 cd's.

    A single dvd can save money


    So basically you need first 3 cd's only. Now its upto you to choose what you want to do download.

    I prefer vmware as virtual machine and its free for 30 days. so give it a try as well

    OK. I have CD-RW here.

    Vmware-server is not free? If I can't finish the test within 30 days I have to pay. I'm prepared to install guest OS, OpenBSD4.1 and Slackware.

    There are vmware virtual appliances available. You don't need vmware to be installed, just vmware player.

    VMTN - Virtual Appliance Marketplace
