Author Topic: How do I shot X-server Installation?  (Read 1891 times)

« on: November 10, 2007, 01:57:48 am »

I've just finished trying to install VL5.9RC1 on my test box.  All goes well, except the X11.tlz appears to be unextractable.  I could just download the iso again but I'm on limited download quota, and given that everything else installs fine, I figure I'd just try and load X in afterwards through slapt-get

As it turns out, I haven't the faintest idea how to do that properly Sad

Any assistance?  I don't need help (at this point) in actually configuring it to work with my hardware properly, I just need to know where to put what, or where to get what from.

Thanks in advance.

the first thing I would try is to extract the X11 bulk after you have completed the rest of the install.
login as root
mount the cd "mount /dev/cdrom"
cd to /   "cd /"
extract the bulk "lzma -cd /mnt/cdrom/veclinux/optional/X11.tlz|tar xp"
if that doesnt work you will have to slapt-get each package in that bulk.
