I made this quick video on how to partition Slackware 12
How to partition Slackware 12
You might need to turn up the volume. Let me know what you think of this video and if I should continue to make them.
steps are here for reference:
Boot up the Slackware installation disk
Select a keyboard map (if needed)
Log in as root
Use “cfdisk” to get into the disk manager
Create a swap partition in MB double the size of memory. If you have 256 MB of ram, use 512, 128 use 256 etc.
Change the partition type to swap
Create a root partition on the available space with the full disk
Make this partition bootable with the Linux file system type
write the changes to the disk.
This is a very basic setup. I want to make more videos on various subjects if this one picks up. In the line up is a whole Slackware setup tutorial and possibly various other distributions too. I would like to demonstrate other software and technologies.
