I still have a few minor fixes ('cancel' not cancelling mostly) to do on the installer as well as adding pxesetup (if I ever get around to that) so I'll try to remember to merge the btrfs option from the Slackware SeTpartitions script at the same time.
This is excactly what I did, set up my partitions in gparted (sys rescue cd) and ran the installer without formatting anything. At bootup, I get a prompt for maintainance password because fsck.btrfs is not found.
How can I install btrfs-progs now? Can I use the systemrescuecd to chroot to my salix installation and install btrfs-progs from slapt-get?
If so, any tips to commands?
