While running setup to install the D series of the slackware release 2.2,
from CD-ROM, after installing the g++ compiler, assorted libs etc., and
three sets of kernal source, I got the above message and setup aborted. I
never saw perl, reputed to be in this series.
Now, when I try to run setup, after I select the prompt mode, I am
greeted with an infinite series of "shift: shift count must be <= $#"
messages. I think that the above session was the last time I was able to
successfully start up setup.
What's going on?
If I can't figure this out, how do I install without setup in the meantime?
I am going to post this twice, the second time with the "shift" message
in the subject line, so please ignore the duplicate message. Thank you,
