You will need an USB stick of size 4G or more.
Linux plug in the USB stick, then check its name with following commands:
lsblk -o model,name,size,fstype,mountpoint
If its name is /dev/sdc for instance, type:
dd if=<filename.iso> of=/dev/sdc bs=1M
Windows use application Rufus that is free and open source.
Linux insert the DVD then type a command like this:
growisofs -speed=2 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=slint64-14.1-full.iso
Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 use application InfraRecorder that is free and open source.
Windows 7, 8 and 10 use Windows Disk Image Burner, shipped with Windows.
To install Slint you will need at least 10G of free space on a hard disk or SSD of for the system itself, plus the space needed for you files and additional software. The size you need for your files of course widely depends on what yu have already or plan to store. This can be, say, from 30G to 500G as an order of magnitude.
In this free space you will need at least one partition of type Linux (size at least 10G), plus one small EFI partition in case you boot your machine in EFI mode.
If you install on a machine without OS, you can directly create the partitions (see below how to do that)
You can install Slint alongside another or other system(s) like Windows, Mac OS, *BSD or another Linux distribution, performing a so called
For that you will need to first make some room on an hard disk or SSD that you will use to install Slint.
You can do this two ways:
disk management(program diskmgmt.msc) for Windows.
In this case you can go directly to the next step: create partitions for Slint.
You can create partitions for Slint either before or during installation, as you like. If you are not accustomed to Linux you will probably find easier to do it before installation
In all cases you will need to create:
EFI, with a size of at least 100M, unless there be already one such partition (probably used to boot another system),
swapwith a size of at least that of your RAM, preferably twice. This is useful if you want to be able to put your system in
hibernatemode or you don' have much RAM (say, less that 4G).
Linuxwith as much space of possible. Slint itself needs around 10G but you could install additional software, and could need a lot more space for your files. So I recommend a partition size of 50G if you can afford it, more if you need to store pictures, videos or music for instance.
To do that you could use gparted, that can not only shrink an existing partition to make some room, but also create partitions in the freed space.
To create partitions during installation you can just type
cfdisk when suggested by the installer.
Just insert the installation media (DVD or USB stick) and reboot your machine.
Braille display or terminal aka
screen reader can be used by blind users to install then pilot the system. Read the instructions for use.
You will first be proposed to choose the language to use during installation. Select it with the
down arrow keys, then click [Enter] to begin installation.
If your native language is not listed, pick the one you know the best.
