How do I go about installing software from a '.tar.gz' file that doesn't have a "make" file (such as "jre-8u25-linux-i586.tar.gz)?

Let me start off by stating I love my 64 bit Vector Linux, light efficient. I recently installed slackpkg and then entered the command "slackpkg update". Upon a reboot when the modules were loading avahi daemon and avahi network both failed to load. After login I could no longer connect to the internet and my network drives were no longer available for me to access.

Can anyone help me get things working again.

Thank you.

"The usual suspects" in these cases are:

- memory errors
- hard drive write error
- optical drive read error

Install source:
- corrupted download
- bad disc burn
- scratches/smudges on disc surface

This may seem like a cop-out, blaming your machine, but those are the things I would start checking if this happened to me. First, I'd try a lightweight LiveCD to see if it will run. If not, next step would be Ultimate boot CD: - use it to test your memory and hard drive.

If the machine will boot from USB, I'd try the same using a thumb drive instead of the cdrom drive.
