fridimbut... how can I reinstall grub ? with the netinstall ?
I don't want to do the same thing twice
It won't work
comsaQwirotk what distro u using
mfrischlive-cd chroot / run grub
Supaplex!live
dpkgwell, live is not evil.
fridimWyzard, did grub work well after the install for you ?
Wyzardfridim: I didn't use RAID for my /boot
fridimI've DamnSmallLinux, it may help me
mfrischdo you have a seperate /boot
Supaplexa left boot and a right boot. ;)
_deepfireis there a canned way to debian-sys-maint-ify a mysql-server install?
fridimmfrisch, yes, but on a Raid1 (mdadm)
I really don't know how to reinstall grub or modify it.
tarzeaufridim: it's really easy.
fridim: inside grub you can use the 'e' key as told on the bottom
fridimno : error 21
tarzeaufridim: 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?
fridimI know about the e key, but in my case, it freezes after stage 1.5
_deepfirein 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
QuantumGhi, 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
SupaplexQuantumG: 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
_deepfireisn'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
Supaplexit'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
Supaplexwell, you could hack PATH and lib loader paths
Gumby__insert hans reiser joke here__
_deepfireWyzard, 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?
Harzileinuhm, apt.conf has a Dir:: section
one can put sone -o option and it'll use another root, another var etc.
s/sone/some/
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
