A Slackware System For The Rest Of Us!

Including Slackware 11.0 Release Candidate 1


A VMware virtual machine created by Centauri Computer Works


Have you ever longed to play with Slackware Linux but were put off by the (totally untrue) horror stories told about installing Slackware? Then you've come to the right place!

Here are Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 Release Candidate 1 Linux systems already configured for VMware Server 1.0, Workstation 5.5 or Player 1.0. These virtual machines include most packages that would be installed by default, including X and KDE. The X Windows system has already been configured and the VMware Tools are installed. All you need to do is download it and fire it up in VMware.

Download the Slackware 10.2 Virtual Machine (580MB)

Download the Slackware 11.0 RC1 Virtual Machine (745MB)

The virtual machine has been configured as follows:

There two user accounts, root and netadmin, with the password set to  slackware  for both accounts. Once you login, you can run KDE by typing  startx  at the command prompt. Beyond configuring X Windows and installing the VMware tools, nothing else has been done and it's ready to be further configured by you, all of which is beyond the scope of this document.
