How to install Slackware ARM on Raspberry RPI3 for very beginners?

Tue Dec 26, 2017 4:13 pm

Hello,

I have found those two archives:
sarpi3-installer_slackcurrent_sp1.img.xz md5
sarpi3-installer-boot_slackcurrent_sp1.zip md5

Code: Select all

xcat sarpi3-installer_slackcurrent_sp1.img.xz | dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 
I did have a SD, I start the RPI3 with it.

I get login:
enter root

then

Code: Select all

# setup
I could get internet via ETHERNET ETH0 cable, that links to internet. So, let's go next:

There is the usual blue install menu of slackware. But where to install, how to put a grub, how to put a system... I am very much lost on the installation steps.

Any help would be welcome.

From official: http://sarpi.co.uk/index.php?p=getslack
to get : ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarear ... earm-14.2/

This is Evil !


Code: Select all

root@mynixbox:/slackarm# rsync -Pavv --delete ftp.slackware.uk::slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current/ .
RSYNC with delete, as root. It cannot be Unix, i.e. security, risks,.... ?

Security risks downloading from official Slackware ARM source. Oh yeah sure. If you're not confident this is ok under 'root' user, then don't use 'root' user to do it! Don't forget you're creating a specific temporary folder in which to rsync the Slackware ARM source. It's not evil or dangerous unless you're one of those people who encounter problems by not reading instructions properly.

The '--delete' option removes any files that aren't present in the source. Or else you'd end up with a lot of useless files over time.

The advised use of this command is:

Code: Select all

rsync -Prv --delete ftp.slackware.uk::slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current .
