antumrahul ok, i'll give it a try
jelly-homecolsham: it could be your BIOS thinks the backup drive is the first one to boot from, when the backup drive is connected.
GuerinKi11Bi11: myspace might be stupid in itself, but peoples' reasons for using it aren't.
eleinazar, this looks helpful. I am clueless about this. I intended a general upgrade. The original problem was getting gcc4 but it expanded.
ki11bi11Guerin, you may be right i've never been to mysapce, i'm talking about virtualization being the next big thing for us computer types
GuerinKi11Bi11: ...
Azarelein: dist-upgrade is mainly used when you want to upgrade from one Debian version to another upwards ofcourse. It should not be used "just because" or for a single package upgrade... as far as I know
museWould someone be kind enough to point me to a tutorial for setting up LVM on debian during an Install
colshamGuerin, 'it' is definitely looking at the drive i am currently using becos now the backup drive is disconnected. but when i connect up the backup drive, i fail to boot with grub error 15.
holycowjelly-home, as an aside, that box is still running and the hd is still mounted. i should be able to use cfdisk to recreate the partition table and 'reinstall' grugb if i need to on the live box eh? not rebooted yet ...
abrotmanmuse: sarge or etch ?
!ig
dpkgI heard "ig" is Installation Guide .. see http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/index.html for x86 Etch/Tesing (all ARCHs and in various formats for Etch listed here http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/ ) , or see http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/installmanual for Sarge/Stable (3.1,3.1r4).
eleinazar, it was advice from someone who is now not available. :(
Azarelein: for packages not provided by your Debian version but by a higher version you can use the backports
Guerincolsham: ok, you need to fix your boot: line in grub
jelly-homeholycow: hmm cat /proc/partitions ?
museabrotman: testing...
holycowjelly-home, all there
stewelein: you can't install gcc4 on sarge
abrotmanmuse: see 'ig' above
stewelein: you'd have to upgrade to etch first
musethx
colshamGuerin, menu.lst? which line?
Azarelein: since I have no idea about gnome or kde, because I never used them I do not know how to help you...
jelly-homeholycow: now you have their sizes in blocks, shouldn't be too hard to recreate the part.table
eleinazar, ok. OK. That is why we did the dist-upgrade, but the release notes say not to do the upgrade while gdm is running and it is. so that makes sense.
Azarelein: read that documentation I gave you first, then upgrade to etch if you want
yep :)
ki11bi11There is a tide in the afairs of men, that taken at the flood, leads on to victory!
Azarand change your sources from / stable to / etch
jelly-homeholycow: it's a good thing you did that on a live machine, so that kernel still remembers the partitions
holycow*whew* thanks for that!
printed off that table
heh
eleinazar, thank you
colshamboot line of menu.lst looks ok.
jelly-homeholycow: you can save the output of sfdisk -d /dev/??? when you install a new machine (or after restoring this one), the output can be piped back to sfdisk to recreate the table
hmm
holycowjelly-home, intersting, i'm looking for the calculations on google to convert blocks to size ... i don't think cfdisk alocates by block
