|CutMeOwnThroat||but I was running a current unstable kernel before, so they stay the same|
|stew||CutMeOwnThroat: becuase there were a bunch of security fixes for your kernel, so the security team uploaded a fixed one|
|stew||CutMeOwnThroat: what can't be?|
|CutMeOwnThroat||they are both 2.6.18-4|
nothe the -4
note the -4
that means: exactly the same
|dvs||CutMeOwnThroat: not in this case|
what is versioning *for*, when you dont use it
|stew||CutMeOwnThroat: yes, you are replacing linux-image-2.6.18-4-k7 version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-12 with linux-image-2.6.18-4-k7 version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch1|
CutMeOwnThroat: the package name is the same, but it is a new version of that package
but that should mean it has the same contents
|dvs||CutMeOwnThroat: no, they have different version numbers|
|stew||CutMeOwnThroat: if it had the same contents, there would be no point in releasing a new version|
now the kernel modules I gave my blood for are gone, you want to say?
grmp... didnt _plan_ to do a kernel update
|lfs||So like what does grub-install /dev/sdd do?|
|stew||lfs: copies files to /boot/grub , installs a boot loader to the first sector of /dev/sd|
|lfs||I'll find out|
Is that all I need?
|CutMeOwnThroat||stew: well, there would be a point - if all etch packets had the etch postfix, that would explain why this one also needs it|
|stew||lfs: is /boot/grub located on /dev/sdd?|
CutMeOwnThroat: what do you mean by "etch packet" and "etch postfix"?
|lfs||grub-install doesnt work on usb device|
|stew||lfs: yes it does|
|lfs||Debian:/home/lfs# grub-install /dev/sdd|
/dev/sdd does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.
|stew||CutMeOwnThroat: if you mean "all etch packages need an 'etch???' string appended to their version string, that would be incorrect|
CutMeOwnThroat: those are generally only for updates to etch packages done after the release
|dotCOMmie||Hello, when you update a package it prompts you what you want to do if config file has been changed.. is there an easy way to get this dialogue after you told it to do nothing during update|
in other words how do I install a config file fresh from a package?
|abrotman||!tell dotCOMmie about confmiss|
