Default slackware sucks

Wow. What shit! Everyone says its great. Its great about not telling you errors during install. Everything seems to install fine but when it asks about lilo and where to install it says error you can't do shit. No back button in the entire intall menu and some places in the menu cancel don't work and it treats it like ok and of course becuause there is no back button you have to go through some of the menus till you are brought back to the main. GAY! Just it not giving me good errors just pisses me off and not linux don't want to boot. I tried to boot using the install cd and then it bitches about the superblock beeing readonly and when I just went ahead and continued to boot I got to the command prompt typed startx then it bitched about something and said I had email waiting and had some shit about some woman that wanted to put togeather files in one big file or some shit. I don't know but this is bull shit that it tells me nothing!

I don't know. I figured intstalling this would be easy and simple but why would it work that would be just easy. I am going to give it a go one more time and repeat later what it does.

Slackware is not "easy" or "simple". I wouldn't really recommend it for a desktop system, but it's good for building a system where all you need is a very specific set of packages and you want it to all run quickly together (see ZipSlack). If you're looking for a "roll-your-own" type distro, check out Gentoo. If you're looking for something "simple" or "easy", try Ubuntu or Fedora.

Default Re: slackware sucks

formatting the swap partition... ok
slecting partition for root... ok
selecting filesystem and formatting for /dev/hda6 and using ext2 standard linux filesystem... ok
selecting full install... ok I think
something happened in console 4 during this install
mount:wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda6, or too many mounted file system(god windows firefox is gay for not letting the space and tab button to work now at the start of these lines)
installing linux kernel and using the cdrom's slackware cd... ok
choose /cdtom/kernels/bare.i/bzImage
now to lilo
lets try simple option :P
I have root floppy and the master boot record
don't think it matters because it spits that dumbass error nomatter what but for the hell of it lets install to superblock
... ok
of the 1st time it didn't say shit but I don't think that matters because its probly still going to fuck up
all setting done reboot and it will fuck up I am shure...
yeah allright boots to windows and lilo didn't show up! Thats what lilo does!
Okay lets try the boot disk...
holy shit!
I boots okay but still has this fucked up email shit after boot
Its different this time
some kind of random shit about some dude can't program and debugging had to be discovered(WTF)
x starts
okay seems to work now
thats so fucked up because this is my 3rd time doing it and I did nothing different so I don't know but so far so good!
