Greeting friends. I have searched throughout and cannot find an answer on the wiki, FAQ, through Google, or elsewhere on the SMS Forums. Please assist if you can. My issue is I have a clean install of Slackware 13.37 x86_64 and want to know how to install SMS over or ontop of my clean installation of Slackware. I cannot install from USB or from any LIVE CD/USB. Can any one advise how to install on a current clean install of Slackware 13.37 x86_64?

Thanks much!!

The recommended way is to install SMS clean, that means you need to boot from CD/USB to format your slackware installation and install SMS.

Any reason you want to install over slackware?

Theoretically you can install by mounting SMS64.Native.CD-1.6.6-Install.iso e.g. in /mnt/cdrom and do

upgradepkg --install-new /mnt/cdrom/slackware64/{a,ap,d,devel,l,n}/*.txz

type "lilo" and reboot.

This although will destroy you current slackware installation, you can't have both, unless you use a virtual machine (vitrualbox, vmware e.t.c).

I would like to do the recommended install but this is for an VPS, and I cannot boot from USB or CD. The VPS only has Slackware installed so I want to over-write it with SMS.

I will follow the instructions you suggested! Surprised
