CutMeOwnThroatbut I was running a current unstable kernel before, so they stay the same
stewCutMeOwnThroat: becuase there were a bunch of security fixes for your kernel, so the security team uploaded a fixed one
CutMeOwnThroat?
cant be
stewCutMeOwnThroat: what can't be?
CutMeOwnThroatthey are both 2.6.18-4
nothe the -4
note the -4
that means: exactly the same
dvsCutMeOwnThroat: not in this case
CutMeOwnThroat??
why not
what is versioning *for*, when you dont use it
stewCutMeOwnThroat: 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
CutMeOwnThroathm
but that should mean it has the same contents
gah
dvsCutMeOwnThroat: no, they have different version numbers
stewCutMeOwnThroat: if it had the same contents, there would be no point in releasing a new version
CutMeOwnThroat:(
sigh
now the kernel modules I gave my blood for are gone, you want to say?
grmp... didnt _plan_ to do a kernel update
lfsSo like what does grub-install /dev/sdd do?
stewlfs: copies files to /boot/grub , installs a boot loader to the first sector of /dev/sd
lfsI'll find out
Is that all I need?
CutMeOwnThroatstew: well, there would be a point - if all etch packets had the etch postfix, that would explain why this one also needs it
stewlfs: is /boot/grub located on /dev/sdd?
CutMeOwnThroat: what do you mean by "etch packet" and "etch postfix"?
lfsgrub-install doesnt work on usb device
stewlfs: yes it does
lfsDebian:/home/lfs# grub-install /dev/sdd
/dev/sdd does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.
stewCutMeOwnThroat: 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
dotCOMmieHello, 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
