So far as I can tell, slint appears to have a 2tb hard drive size limit. 
I tried it with a 3tb drive and hope I haven't permanently trashed the 
drive.  What happens with slint is you set up a swap partition on the 
drive and a linux partition and it doesn't matter what you use to do it 
either.  Once done, you run setup and get the message that slint can't 
find any partitions on the hard drive.  I have a bad compatibility 
situation here since technology is 24 years old and back in those years 
all that was known about was bios, efi and uefi didn't exist then.  Last 
bios flash update for AMD k8 athelon computers I think was 2006.  So, I'll 
see if I can rescue the 3tb drive with archlinux then go from there.
