THANKS -- Slackware Install Problems

Post by EVAN NOYNAE » Fri, 20 May 1994 06:59:39

Thanks to everyone who contacted me about my SLACKWARE install problems.

I received several responses to my question about problems installing
the SLACKWARE distribution.  I also received messages from several people
who said they had the same type of problems.

The culprit seems to be having only 4 meg of RAM.  Does anyone know of a
workaround for this?  Could I temporarily rob 4 meg from another machine,
install LINUX (or at least the swap partition), and then return the 4 meg
from whence it came?

I realize that in the long run I'm going to need more memory.  Right now I
just want to demonstrate that the system would be useful so that I can
shake some additional $$$$ from our administration.

Again, thanks to the net for your help.

1. ELF Install Problem, Thanks.

I just installed my first ELF on a backup box (to be sure!) and
get this error when I run gcc -v:

toaster[\54]/root> gcc -v    
/usr/bin/gcc: /usr/bin/gcc: cannot execute binary file

It this because I did not *first* rebuild the kernel with
ELF support (stupid me)?
