You get any error or anything to report, or does it just sit there?

Try "linux text" at the boot prompt. Or "linux nofirewire" (uh, is it nofirewire? I can't remember--it's in this forum somewhere....)

I've been happy as a clam with 19k on my laptop. It certainly is faster/cleaner.

The menus don't update when you add a new application though, unless you log out or something. Before it was instant--not sure how to get it to re-update without logging out.

Ok it just sits there. on /sbin/loader. Not install like I previously said my screen was kinda kinda out of sync. So yeah anyways it sits on /sbin/loader and refuses to budge even with copies that work on other systems. I am not sure what the problem is as I have tried typing all the boot optins listed.

The menus haven't been organized yet...

gift requires command line setup before it gets going. I'm thinking of removing it from the menu entirely...

For apt, sources should be there, but are now (as in 10k too) /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

A bit more info... WORKSFORME

Note, in kernel 2.6 you don't need ide-scsi emulation, so you can remove that from /etc/grub.conf.

My last line in /etc/cdrecord.conf:

Code:
cdrom=          ATA:1,0,0       -1      -1      burnfree

It's coming... It's md5sum is:
89cbff335a7daa2ab8503093cb1fa068

Code:
md5sum BLAG-19999.00071.iso


This verifies the integrity of the download.

Yes, you can upgrade via apt from 19999.00067 to 19999.00071. It should be clean, but this is alpha...

Code:
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade


It's quite a large dist-upgrade as there are many new packages.

... i know its alpha. but blag is great since my old 9002 :-)

thanks for your big work !


But when i do apt-get dist-upgrade, then there are only about 43 MB to download ?! Is that right ?

managed to install .00067 onto a thinkpad 600. Went ok. (tip: don't proceed with the install if the cd fails the media chexk). Detected Realtek 8139 ethernet chipset which took some time to work out how to configure with 9002. So no trouble with apt-get once '67 was installed. Still need to configure the resolution but that seems to always happen on the 600. Haven't taken it for a proper test spin yet as it's late right now. However I slapped a cd into it and got no sound. Will have to 'alsa' or something.

[edited to say: I'm so impressed with 9002 and marvelously happy with 10k. 'spect and keep up the good stuff]

last line of cd-record is the same as in your post
and did not see reference to ide in grub.conf?

Jebba, the apt upgrade from 00067 to 00071 worked perfectly,to let anyone know that it does work.

Minor stuff:-Two gui menu entries for bluefish. Programming > bluefish editor.

Lovely:- Used apt-get to install 'xcdroast. D-loaded and installed perfectly. (12 aug 2004). Gui menu was updated no prob.

Head scratching:- cdrecord does not recognise external CDs. Tried with xcdroast as well.
Code:
cdrecord --scanbus
Warning: Using badly designed ATAPI via /dev/hd* interface


have googled this but from the threads that I've read there seems to be a booot parameter solution. Will post when I find a working solution.

Make sure that there are no ide-scsi lines in your /etc/grub.conf kernel line. It isn't needed anymore (as of kernel 2.6).

Nope. /etc/grub.conf kernel line reads as follows:-
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.435.2.3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet. There's another kernel line but it's commented out. That line doesn't mention any scsi devices either.
