Slackware 9.1 ISOs - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, just a quick question. I'm about to do a download of the slackware 9.1 iso files, but I dot want to do a download of stuff I don't need, especially at 600MB a time. So which ISOs contain the installation, and which ones contain the useful stuff, but not required straight away. Cheers. Mark....

    If you're in Europe, you might try

    Otherwise a mirror near you might do the job...

    Or you might try BitTorrent...

    AND, of course, you must buy the official distro from Slackware:

    Have a nice day.

    OK, thanks for that. I'll Just download the first two for now, and do
    the others later. I was a little surprised there were 4 iso images,
    when only one existed in 9.0. Slackware must have really pushed the
    boat out for version.

    Cheers.

    CD 2 is only needed if you want KDE, GNOME or the extras...

    ftp://ftp.slackware.at/ isn't too loaded and gives me 60k/sec at the moment.

    Slack 9.0 was 4 disks, I only ordered disk 1 from cheapbytes, and that
    was sufficient. I believe 1 disk is source, 1 is zipslack and I don't
    recall the other.

    I'd imagine 9.1 is essentially the same.

    You'll basically only need the first disk ISO. I downloaded the first

    set up a complete system including X, applications, KDE, Gnome, etc.
    I doubt that configuration has changed. Usually all source code is
    on the last ISO.

    FWIW, here's what's listed for the 9.0 set at store.slackware.com

    This 4-disc set includes:

    * Bootable installation disc
    * Bootable live disc, the Ultimate Linux rescue and demo disc!
    * ZipSlack, installation onto a Windows partition
    * Complete source code and handy Linux archives

    It surely is the minimum, but in order to make a FULL installation,
    Slackware 9.1 setup asks for the "next disc" :o)

    It is asking for it right now on my "spare" PC...
    (and downloading Install2.iso is only at 89%, it'll wait :o)

    So, to be on the safe side, you should get Slackware 9.1 Install1 *and*
    Install2 isos.

    For as long as I have been using Slackware distro (and most certainly
    before ;o), it has been the case (3.1 to 3.5, 4.0, 7.0, 7.1, 8.0, 8.1
    and even 9.0), but for 9.1 this is not true anymore: there are two
    Install discs :oO

    Reply to all:

    Yes, It seems you do need both disks for the install, the second one
    being mainly kde and gnome.

    Thanks for your help everybody, much appreciated. My system is now up and
    running, and I'm a very happy man.

    That's very cool of you. REAL free software.


    (Why don't you join the discussion on comp.os.linux.misc, called:
    Re: to sig or not to sig?
    We are trying to hash out reasonable guidelines for posting on the
    Usenet. What a size limit for things like scripts should be [ just an
    over all size limit would be involved, I think ] might be something
    you want to chip in on....)

    Just so that this post is not totally OT:

    I've been running Debian for a while, but after reading this thread,
    I believe I will install Slackware 4.0 on my backup box, and then, if
    it is as good as I think it is, use it here on my main box.
