karstennzk: ... add more '-v' args as necessary.
EnverexErm, is the default /etc/fstab supposed to be completely empty?
xandEnverex: no
Enverex: if it was, the machine wouldn't work ;)
karstenEnverex: Only if you have no mounts.
xandas / wouldn't get mounted
karstenxand: It would be mounted (happens at boot) but IIRC it wouldn't be remounted RW, though you could check that.
\amethystat the very least /proc should be there
xandwell, you should still get three lines at the top
comments
EnverexWell mine is blank and the machine booted...
karstenEnverex: Regardless: looks like you've got a problem, might want to 1) fix it and 2) sort how it happened.
Enverex: cat /proc/mounts
EnverexIt just said "#BLANK FSTAB FOR UNCONFIGURED SYSTEM" in there or something along those lines
karstenEnverex: Care to share a little system history with us?
Enverex: How'd you get here?
Enverexkarsten, This is the first boot actually, heh
xandhas installation finished?
karstenEnverex: Sounds like you didn't get all the way through your install.
Enverexxand, Yeah, it installed fine and rebooted at the end after asking me
karstenEnverex: What installation method are/were you using?
Dave_is_sexyi have this driver file, which allegedly contains linux and windows drivers. it's an exe though!
EnverexEverything else is fine, I just have an empty fstab
\amethystdave_is_sexy: try unzipping it
dave_is_sexy: unzip can handle some self-extracting archives
karstendave_is_sexy: Quite possibly a self-extracting EXE which is frequently either a PKZIP or CABEXTRACT file
Enverexkarsten, The 4.0rc1 disc, can't remember which
Dave_is_sexy\amethysy: ta. tried with xarchiver. it said no
xandi've seen .exe files which were actually linux executables
Enverexkarsten, although I have changed the sources.list and dist-upgrade'd since....
\amethystdave_is_sexy: what does file foo.exe say about it?
karstenEnverex: Sounds like a pre-final installer. You could patch up this system (should be dable but you need to know what it is you're doabling) or try to reinstall. chroot install directions mostly checklist what you want working / to check for on install. Appendix C in the Sarge docs, not sure for Etch.
Wolfetehello
Dave_is_sexy\amethyst: MS-DOS executable PE for MS Windows (GUI) Intel 80386 32-bit
karstenEnverex: ... wrote those originally, don't have time to walk you through them.
TimRaineyHow can I findout the local network IP?
rgsteeleTimRainey: ifconfig
karstendave_is_sexy: 'file <name>.exe' should give you an idea of the file type.
dave_is_sexy: You can also often unpack these with wine.
Enverexkarsten, The machine is fine otherwise, I'll just write them in myself. I just thought it was rather bizarre
