The installer sets HOSTNAME to 'zenwalk.hyperion.net' without asking.

*.hyperion.net belongs to
Hyperion Networks, Inc
KR, seoul, 123456

This leads to weird DNS behavior - just search the forum.

timezone is set to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris and not ask for later.

There is a broken link /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc -> xinitrc.kde

lilo.install could add an default boot entry:
default=Zenwalk
and, as a convenience, a rescue entry to boot into 'init 3'
<TAB> isn't well known, much less adding 3

And, already posted by someone else, ctrl-c in postinstall doesn't work
If it locks your system, rc.postinstall gets repeatably executed
and 'chmod 400 /etc/rc.d/rc.postinstall' is never reached.

i think the correct syntax is this

Code: Select all

netpkg install qt-base-3.3.8b-i486-52.1.tgz


btw, packages.zenwalk.org don't find that :o

qt-base-3.3.8b-i486-52.1.tgz is obsolet, now, you have the 'qt3' slackware-13.0 package in [extra/l] but, this package is compiled , --prefix=/opt/kde3

for install this package use the command 'netpkg qt3' or use xnetpkg in control panel.

'netpkg xz' isn't it obvious?
external compression utility xz missing

If not at a first glance, you can always search
grep -w xz /var/netpkg/pkglistfile
Use of '-w' is recommended here - there are a lot of packages with xz in their name ;)

'/var/netpkg/db/pkglistfile' should be '/var/netpkg/pkglistfile' ; /db/ is gone for some time

Either answer '2' for download or get it manually
wget http://<your-mirror>/ap/netpkg-4.6-i486-62.1.tgz
wget http://<your-mirror>/a/xz-4.999.8beta-i486-1.tgz

and upgrade with
'upgradepkg xz-4.999.8beta-i486-1.tgz netpkg-4.6-i486-62.1.tgz'

Try to update low level packages first - did you update netpkg?
netpkg netpkg
netpkg pkgtools

Saving to: `/var/packages...
Make sure the packages are really in place.
Look at /var/log/packages for already installed packages - manually.

Then try 'installpkg /var/packages/...' for packages already downloaded or download first with wget
and 'installpkg ...'
Check for correct pkgtools.
