|fridim||but... how can I reinstall grub ? with the netinstall ?|
I don't want to do the same thing twice
It won't work
|comsa||Qwirotk what distro u using|
|mfrisch||live-cd chroot / run grub|
|dpkg||well, live is not evil.|
|fridim||Wyzard, did grub work well after the install for you ?|
|Wyzard||fridim: I didn't use RAID for my /boot|
|fridim||I've DamnSmallLinux, it may help me|
|mfrisch||do you have a seperate /boot|
|Supaplex||a left boot and a right boot. ;)|
|_deepfire||is there a canned way to debian-sys-maint-ify a mysql-server install?|
|fridim||mfrisch, yes, but on a Raid1 (mdadm)|
I really don't know how to reinstall grub or modify it.
|tarzeau||fridim: it's really easy.|
fridim: inside grub you can use the 'e' key as told on the bottom
|fridim||no : error 21|
|tarzeau||fridim: in debian there's /boot/grub/menu.lst and here's some hint to reinstall grub: http://linuks.mine.nu/grub/fixing.txt|
21 on the raid1 (mdadm)? tried googling? or the #grub and their docs?
|fridim||I know about the e key, but in my case, it freezes after stage 1.5|
|_deepfire||in my humble opinion, grub developers should have concentrated on basics of booting from various FSes/RAID setups, instead of doing some arguably far-fetched development|
|QuantumG||hi, is there a command I can do as non-root which will get me a package I can see with apt-cache search? i.e., a user equivilent of apt-get install -d|
|Supaplex||QuantumG: well, there is apt-get source|
but that's not binary, naturally.
|Wyzard||_deepfire: GRUB supports quite a few filesystems just fine, and booting from things like software RAID and LVM *is* the "far-fetched" stuff|
|_deepfire||isn't it possible to apt-get install into a subdirectory of one's ~?|
Wyzard, last i saw it didn't support reiser4
|Harzilein||_deepfire: binary packages have fixed paths|
|Supaplex||it's not supported AFAIK, but I'd sure like to see myself.|
|Wyzard||_deepfire: Last I saw, reiser4 isn't in Linus's tree anyway|
|Supaplex||well, you could hack PATH and lib loader paths|
|Gumby||__insert hans reiser joke here__|
|_deepfire||Wyzard, i think that for the purposes of a boot loader the on-disc format is stable enough, though|
|QuantumG||_deepfire: you can use dpkg --root=blah --install foo.deb|
but how do you get foo.deb?
|Harzilein||uhm, apt.conf has a Dir:: section|
one can put sone -o option and it'll use another root, another var etc.
|Wyzard||_deepfire: Nonetheless, I've never met anyone actually using reiser4, so inability to use it for /boot doesn't seem like a major issue|
