After a few kernel panics (only the kernel panicked, I didn't, he he) trying to boot a new kernel image without proper lilo reconfs, I managed to run the thing. "dpkg-reconfigure lilo" did the job.
Now the system boots over a smart boot manager floppy (http://btmgr.sourceforge.net/
) and loads the kernel right in the debian partition. Very nice. I have kernel 2.6.5-1-k7, kde 3.2.2 and stuff... The damn thing flies! Very fast!
Also, I can mount all my other reiser partitions from suse.
I wanna thank all you guys from LQ-Debian, without whom I wouldn't reach this!
And also, ask for more support... I guess I'll have to reinstall some of my hardware:
- No network. when I "ifup eth0", it says: "Unrecognized kernel version". "Modprobe 8139too" returns no errors, but the unrecognized message keeps coming when I ifup again.
- No sound. when I open kmix, it asks for mixer device with a list that won't contain any. No idea where to start. In /dev I see devices dsp and audio, some of them.
It is a matter of install drivers? Do I download them in tar.gz form? apt-get can do something for me?
