The problem came from my wish to install lampp again. I can’t install it cause some thing crash with the original apache server.
So suddenlly I want to upgrade the slackware to 12.2. so Finally the step I already wrote in this web, is step that I did to upgrade.
These are the step
1. Change to init 1
2. Became a root or login again as root
3. mount the cd or iso of slackware 12.2 to some directory. I use /mnt/dvd
/dev/hdc is the device of my dvd.
4. the important things is to upgrade these package first. Don’t forget to do this.
5. Now the upgrade package but with different option.
6. Wait untill all finished.
7. You may take a look at the upgrade.txt file inside the cd of slackware 12.2 there’s a lead to upgrade the slackware. Especially how to change the setting of your old slackware into a new one. You may use the script inside. But not me. I want to preserve the basic setting and use it in my new slackware. So I didn’t use the script. I did it manually.
The upgrade created the .new extention file in /etc/ and /etc/rc.d/. Actually those new files that you need to copy to your old files. These files are the preserved files.
#mv /etc/group.new /home/user
#mv /etc/shadow.new /home/user
#mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.new /home/user
I moved the .new files to my directory cause who knows something wrong happened and I need to returned those files. In this case I use those old files setting so I can use the login username as same as I already created and the same configuration for my monitor.
8. Here you can use the script I mentioned in number 7 to copy the new extention to the old files. Except you have other edited setting you want to preserve in /etc/ and /etc/rc.d
9. go to init 3 again.
10 Restart your slackware.
Now you have your new slackware.
