 +Wouldn'​t it be a good idea to use real screenshots instead of B&W images? Maybe with VirtualBox? ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​vharishankar|Harishankar]] 2012/08/25 22:57//

 +> Will you be replacing all of the screenshot with full color images on the page as they are created or just dumping them into the media manager until all images are ready? --- //​[[wiki:​user:​mfillpot|mfillpot]] 2012/08/26 12:04//

 +===== Namespace and Translation =====
 +
 +Per Eric's comment above, should translations of this page be included in the **slackbook:​** namespace or in the **slackware:​** namespace this page was put under? --- //​[[wiki:​user:​gerardo.zamudio|Gerardo Zamudio]] 2012/08/26 14:17//
 +----
 +Pages that are taken from the Slack Book should go in the **slackbook** namespace, not in the **slackware** namespace. Translations of the Slack Book should go into the associated language namespace - for instance "​slackbook:​install"​ should be translated in Spanish as "​es:​slackbook:​install"​ or else our Wiki's language system will not be able to work out if a page is available in more than one language. \\ This page, **slackware:​install** , seems to have large parts copied verbatim from the Slack Book. Or was the Slack Book page on installation using [[wiki:​user:​kikinovak|kikinovak]]'​s text? I think we need kikinovak to tell us. If this Wiki page actually was derived from the Slack Book then it needs to be moved to the **slackbook:​** namespace. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/08/26 14:22//

 +Restored the document to the slackware namspace to allow community input. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​mfillpot|Matthew Fillpot]] 2012/09/05 16:38//
 +----
 +It is still confusing that typing the word "​install"​ as a search argument leads to two different docs in different namespaces.
 +
 +It would help the user to know the differences,​ maybe a short introductory paragraph stating the specific purpose of this one?
 +
 +Also, we miss a presentation of the specifics of GPT and UEFI in the context of the installer. For instance it is not obvious for some users to understand why the first screen they see can differ (Grub vs Syslinux) depending on their firmware'​s abilities or settings.

 +Partitioning with fdisk is a little different from the past, since fdisk now supports different partitioning schemes. ​ If you run 'fdisk /​dev/​sda'​ and press '​m'​ for help, then you can see this at the bottom:
 +
 +Create a new label
 +   ​g ​  ​create a new empty GPT partition table
 +   ​G ​  ​create a new empty SGI (IRIX) partition table
 +   ​o ​  ​create a new empty DOS partition table
 +   ​s ​  ​create a new empty Sun partition table
 +
 +Slackware uses LILO which writes to the MBR, so you need to configure the disk as DOS with MBR and then create at least two partitions for swap (type 82) and linux system (type 83) and set the bootable flag on it, just like in the good old, bad old days.
 +
 +So if you have a 20 GB disk for example, run 'fdisk /​dev/​sda',​ type '​o'​ to create a DOS partition, type '​n'​ to make a new partition for +18 GB and again, for 2 GB, type '​t'​ to change the 2 GB partition to 82 (Linux Swap), type '​a'​ to make the 2nd partition bootable and type '​w'​ to write it to disk.
 +
 +Deviate from the above, and LILO won't install.
