Made by a Biker. :twisted:

This is going to be a screenshot tutorial on how I am installing
AntiX 11 on my Asus EEEPC 900 4gig/16gig dual SSD drive netbook.
I will try to make this as coherant as possible. No responsibilty
If you do not backup your system before tryig this. The Author,Members,Developer,
and This site
is not responsible if this does not work for you.

Ok: Now that the Disclaimer is out of the way.

I downloaded Antix 11 from Linux Tracker Torrent.
http://linuxtracker.org/index.php?page= ... 449849c4c6
Took out
a 2 gig Kingston Data Traveler formatted as Fat32. I went to
Unetbootin Site and made a live USB with Unetbootin.
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

First I pick from live boot menu. Icewm no Icons option.
After getting to Desktop. I open Rox terminal. Sux to root terminal. Password
root. Type in
Code:
ifconfig -a
to see what connections
are available for me so I can use Wicd in antix control center (crossed wrenches
on taskbar) which is under Network tab in Control Center.

Now to Plug in another 2 gig Kingston Data Traveler formatted as Fat32.
I need to backup some stuff I have saved in my Installed
Antix 8.5 that is in /home on my secondary 16gig SSD drive which
is /dev/sdb1. Slitaz Mountbox in Control Center (mount connected
devices) under drives tab is perfect for this. I just make the proper entries
for mounting sdb1 and hit the mount button. /mnt already has
a directory named sdb1. So no need to make it.

Attachment:
screenshot1.jpg
screenshot1.jpg [ 87.71 KiB | Viewed 7715 times ]


Next I need to mount /dev/sde1 in /media. I make a file/directory
first in /media and name it sde1. Typing in rox as root terminal
takes care of doing that. Right click inside /media. Add New>Directory. sde1.

After backing up Data. Unmount sdb1 and sde1 with Slitaz MountBox
also. Done.

No on to connect with Wicd in Antix Control Center.

Ok. Now connected Wireless in Live USB. Now for install. Menu>antix installer

Next. I will be installing AntiX to my sda Drive which isthe Phison 4 gig SSD. I will have to move my /home (symlink) to sdb later after install which I will try to cover later in this thread. I also will format both SSD drives as Ext2 File system as these cheap Phison SSD drives can't handle journeled file systems like ext3,ext4,type 82 swap. So no /swap partition for me either.

Now to run the partition tool button and proceed to wipe out AntiX 8.5 which I destroyed yesterday. :oops:

As you can see from next screenshot.

I delete first. Then make a new Primary Ext2 file system on my 16gig secondary SSD drive and label it /home.

This is what it should look like when finished.

Now I can close gparted and proceed with install. Here is the tricky part. I noticed that File System Type only allows for Ext3,Ext4, or reiserfs. I am hoping that ticking the check box>preserve data in /home will keep my ext2 file system intact. Unknown territory for me here as I don't remember if this worked for my AntiX 8.5 install over a year ago. So lets see.

Looks promising to me. Because of (no format) message.

From here on out. What you want enabled is up to you. I don't print with this netbook. I have a Desktop for that.
So I don't need cups and it frees up space in / partition. Next screen shots are pretty standard. Password,User,etc...... Up to you on that stuff.

Time for Lunch and I'll check later to see if I need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst just in case this doesn't boot. So grub before grub. 8)

Everything looks good so far. Now for going over some of my old posts on how I moved /home to /dev/sdb1 in AntiX 8.5. This is where things get a bit freaky deaky since I haven't done this in a long while. :wink:

Went over to my old thread for AntiX 8.5.

http://antix.freeforums.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2328

Had a scare. I dragged my /home in /dev/sda1 to sdb1 but forgot to edit /etc/fstab first. Lost menus,Shutdown,Reboot, you name it. Had to do a hard Shutown. Good thing I had my live USB next to me.
I booted live usb and fixed /etc/fstab to look like the following.

Code:
# Pluggable devices are handled by uDev, they are not in fstab
/dev/sda1 / auto defaults,noatime 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ext2 auto,users,exec,relatime 0 0
# Dynamic entries below


Rebooted and all was well again.

Terminal now looks like

Rox File Manager now looks like

screenshotroxfm.jpg
screenshotroxfm.jpg [ 23.63 KiB | Viewed 7683 times ]


In my Link above. I explain how a dragged and dropped /home to sdb (selected move) using Rox as root. I then dragged /home that I just moved to sdb and dragged it back to sda1 (selected link absolute)

My mistake was not to edit /etc/fstab before closing rox. So edit /etc/fstab first before moving and symlinking /home directory. My last post on this how to I will end with new AntiX 11 screenshot showing my Mac_Lintherd theme in Icewm, New Conky, and Wallpaper.

Feel free to throw hammers, whatever now. I am done. :lol:
