My roommate an I have installed the basic 'A' disks on my 386sx/20
(2meg RAM and 10meg swap) computer's Maxtor HD to try it out. We used
Slackware version 1.1.59. We now want to include some other packages found
in the AP, E, and N disk sets.
The problem we are having is that we can't seem to run setup or
pkgtool to install more packages. The ones on the HD either hang or exit,
and the ones on the floppy disk give us an incompatability error and asks us to
reformat the partition. We would rather not reload everything because it
does take quite a bit of time with this slow machine.
What can we do to install these other disk sets? Can we get new
setup/pkgtools from a ftp site, or fix what we have to work? We have the
dos partition also mounted and we have the Linux disks(A, AP, etc) on there to
speed up the installing process.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
