Thread: Linux installation woes
face BY : Pic Dude email (remove spam text)

Okay, just tried that and it failed too.  I CD'ed into the
directory with the disk sets, ran pkgtool and hit the first
option (install from current directory).  All I got was a
command prompt again.  Did this about 50 times to read the
message that flashed across:
   //var/log/packages: no such file or directory

Apparently this is linked to an adm directory somewhere that
does not exist.  Odd.

I see the .tgz packages under the a, ap, d, etc directories.
I've never had to uncompress the tgz's.  That should be one
of the functions of pkgtool.

I'm going to wget the full installation, re-create the boot
and root disks and try again.
