I might try in a few days when I get done with this work cycle (and if the missus doesn't beat me up with other chores that need done). Is this location where you are downloading from? What troubles are you having?Has anyone managed to get the Slackware live edition to work from a USB thumb drive? I have been experimenting with it, but have not managed to beat it into submission as yet.
Hi guys, thanks for answering my SOS.Hmmm, I'm not on the same page with you yet. The download link I cited does not have any scripts. Is there a reason not to simply use dd to burn one of the ISO's to a USB? I was going to try the MATE edition, but I'm not sure this will help you to troubleshoot the problem.
Ditto. I may be moving one of the computers back to the Study next couple of weeks, along with the modem-router that is currently beside the kitchen sink and getting in my wife's way.It really does surprise me to fail with a wired connection!
Yeah, I like the KISS attitude that the slack group has going on. I have been digging deeper into slack than any other distro, because you have so much that you can do with it. I have been looking at modifying the kernel. Blimey!! It is really involved!!Hi Paul,
Been playing with Slackware on my T42 and liking it - a distro that hardly changes between versions and very unix like.
I have become very frustrated with Debian with all the bugs happening with Stretch so using Devuan as well as Slack.
Cool, I am afraid that I got side tracked from this, and may not get back to it for a while.Welcome back, Paul... it's about time!
I mentioned above that I got the iso2usb.sh script to run finally. But only from within a full-install of Slackware 14.2. I've blown it all away now to pursue other things, but it did work well to make live USB sticks with two Slack versions, with persistence.
