My first Linux installation

Last Updated or created 2023-01-05

Roalt helped me to get my first Linux system running.

I don’t know if it was a floppy install or cd-roms.

I remember buying cdrom sets like these at our local computershop for later installs.

A year later my system was reinstalled with Slackware by Gmc.
Although Roalt helped me getting started with Linux, i’ve learned a lot from Gmc.

First time i saw an Unix system was at my friend Richard when i was 16-ish.
It was a commercial unix system he had on loan. Later he installed Minix or something simulair. This was all pre-linux

I used the Slackware distribution for a long time, but tried others also.

List of Linux distributions and other Unix variants i remember.

  • Redhat
