Thread: How to convert BT2 to slackware 12 HDD install

    So, if I want to merge BT3 and SW12..
    All I have to do is:

    installpkg /slackware-12.0/slackware/*/*.tgz
    and use the >> vmlinuz for BT3 not vmlinuz for SW12

    That is just to merge the 2 OS's right? All I want to do is merge all the tools from BT3 into Slackware 12 without having to install them all individually.

    EDIT: I hate kernel panic!

    Why not install BT3 then upgrade the Slackware stuff from 12.1?

    That way you will still have all the tools from BT3 and the new-nes of Slack
    If video games influenced behavior, we'd all be wandering round darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music...............

    hi, first must say how great tut you made here.

    I did the same, or i try to in a diferent process. anyway maby you can help me out in some prolems i have.

    The process i use to make this upgrade was:
    1. telinit 1
    2. upgradepkg glibc-solibs-*.tgz // pkgtool-*.tgz
    3. upgradepkg --install-new /where/slackware/is/*/*/*.tgz
    4. telinit 3
    5. reboot.

    When i finish this process i had few problems with 'bash fortune' and 'ldconfig'. I google it and now is no problem.

    But now i can't solve this 3 problems. or i cant find any solution while i search for in google.

    1. Can't su normal users if created. ( Can't execute /bin/bash : you don't have permissions)
    2. Every shortcut in kde-start-menu, from backtrack, open and auto close shell.
    3. Not all installed apps can be find at kde-start-menu. << This is not a problem, but they should be there..

    Any ideas to solve this problems?


    Note: I use this process using bt3 & upgrading to 12.2
