Ok, at http://www.slitaz.org/en under NEWS there is a download option for slitaz 5.0-rc2.iso. I just discover that the file is a Dos/Window executable. If I want to download the latest version for linux to install it on the hard disk which file do I have to download and where it is? I would appreciate your help. Thanks

That file IS the correct file. You can easily download it, and use that. However, if you want to install the system, you will have to follow the instructions for doing so.
Typically, this is done by burning the ISO to a CDROM, or writing it to a USB with something like http://www.isotousb.com/
Thanks necrophcord. I was using that file and the 5.0 rc1 and because I was having problem with the partitions, I thought that that could be the case.
well, finally I made it. Actually my fault. I'm not very familiar with gparted. Everything working fine and I have the swap space.
The only thing that remaing unsolve is the letter ñ in spanish keyboard. Even "tazx keyboard", doesn't fixed it. The problem is with the xterm and vi. The funny thing is that it fix the problem when running slitaz from the live CD rc1 On version rc-1 a menu comes out and download you a driver but that option is not in 5.0.rc2. Is it a way to download the ATI driver at this stage?
I suppose I have to download many things. Right now I don't have sound. I can't hear youtube. I download the Flash plugin but still no hearing anything. What else do I need to download?
Love Slitaz. It's a great Linux distro. After trying a lot of them this time I think I will stay here, Its the only system I have installed in the disk right now. I'll be continue using Slitaz 5.0 rc-2 after summer vacation.
For sound issue, try "# alsactl init" on a terminal. It should activate sound control.
Have a nice day!
Thanks Sidini. I got sound now.
Folks, I'm usually using a much heavier version of Linux, based on Debian. Downloaded SlitAz last weekend and worked with it a bit during the week. It's like going from steel-toe work boots to sneakers insofar as the feel is concerned. I suspect I'll be using this one a lot more in days to come.
You are welcome! Enjoy Slitaz! :D

5.0-rc2 displays a ? instead of non-ascii characters with locale set to posix on full or frugal install.
Set the locale to valid country_region:
Logout/in or reboot
On virtualbox, 'HD install' from cd/iso initially failed. vbox gave iso device /dev/sr1 but installer wanted /dev/sr0.
Fix was to do:
mv /dev/sr1 /dev/sr1_
cp -s /dev/sr1 /dev/sr0
Then it worked.
Perhaps installer should poll through srN's?
Note: in retrospect, maybe I should have done:
before the HD install but didn't, thinking, 'why? it's just gonn use what's on the iso...' so if this issue has been resolved, disregard.
After install, couldn't get audio working, but didn't try all that hard. Note: haven't yet tried Guest Additions.
Will try above suggestion of "# alsactl init" next weekend, but I did open the alsactl mixer...shouldn't that do the same?
Anyone know the trick?
Thanks Mojo. Applications/Preferences/System Language solved it in rc2.
Thanks, Sidini! Now sound is working here.
Hi, just installed it in a virtualbox and installed guest additions. You can download it here (import the ova)
SliTaz 5.0 RC-2 release - 19 May 2014_with_vbox_guest_additions_installed (~ 156MiB)
Installed guest additions like this:
@Genesis: You're welcome guy!
@ultrarad: I don't know why the "# alsactl init" trick works, because other user teached it to me (I don't remember his nick). All I do is to teach that trick to anyone that needs it.
