We simplify the view, the installation procedure can be said that there are three steps, three steps are used Slackware Linux installation disk boot system, then step by step to make. We are Take a look at this in three steps. Step one: fdisk partition plan (Partitioning) The minimum requirements to install Linux, there must be a partition [Note], but such a system System’s virtual memory space required, use the Swap File method only produced for students, This may be suitable, but the system efficiency and security of the hearing. As for the more better the situation We work out two for the Linux partitions, one for placement of the entire file system, and the other Outside a virtual memory as a Swap Partition. As for the best case, sucked Department Planning a multi-system file system, the / keep as small as possible, / usr / tmp / var And / home and so can be divided into separate file system, that is, each of which has a dedicated sub- Partition, the last and with a separate partition, the virtual record as Swap Partition Yi body. This set a Linux system in my opinion, is one of the most in line with Department of System safety requirements, and system operation efficiency of a multi-multi-user operating system environment. Note: In fact, they can be an exception, with umsds144.gz do rootdisk, you can split the region in the original MSDOS installation and running Linux, but I do not recommend it, especially for the occasion of Linux put in serious friends, do not do . Quick format recovery Step two: Build a file system (format) Completed a hard disk partition, in fact, the hard disk is still nothing, we only use logic Series on the way to a hard disk, split into several to use the new planning out partitions Still empty, so the division of planning action, closer to the hardware level. Build file systems work is closer to the operating system level of planning action, we Formed in a file system partition, the partition becomes a special structure with an Of the partition. We all are familiar with DOS, we perform on the hard disk or floppy disk FORMAT action, this action is to build the file system, for example, C:> format a: / s. Linux file system build environment action, with mkfs or mke2fs, etc. Utilities do. System installation in this chapter demonstrate the process, we perform Slackware Linux installation program, you can manually perform mkfs (or mke2fs) action, can also be When the software installation, the installer automatically determine, then to decide whether to mkfs. However, if you later have the opportunity to carry out system maintenance manual, there will need to use command To build the file system, for example, attributes to create a Linux (ext2fs) on the floppy Is a typical example of Step three: the Slackware Linux installation to the hard disk This step is really looking forward to, this step will the software from a floppy disk (or CD- ROM remote NFS server or hard disk will do) to the specified hard disk partition. Note that this step will be a copy to the hard disk to the new Kernel, but the Kernel is different from the bootdisk floppy disk on the Kernel, the actual installation, the installer Will ask you to install the IDE Kernel or SCSI Kernel, you must correctly answer, which is based on your hard disk controller card in the form, choose one of them (if you do not know your hard drive Specifications, it is probably IDE). Again readers, this step must be correct and careful installation, the best we should try to Complete installation, it is best you at least install the A (system basic tools) B (often the most basic With application software) and N (network applications) series software, you want to build another system If the core (which is almost absolutely necessary to the action), D series includes system development tools Core services and the system code (Kernel source code) is also absolutely necessary, in addition to Beyond this, F-Series includes all kinds of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) file, I Series Info the best online manual page, etc. are also installed, as well as the Q series is quite important, this is for Different hardware devices and applications are precompiled kernel daemon (Kernel), from which you can choose one to use. In short, the positioning of the fun nature of Linux, you may wish to selectively install, as solemn occasions, as far as possible all of the installation. Less leakage install the necessary software, will bring their own unnecessary distress.
