Just thought to bite the bullet, after finally getting Debian 3.0(WOODY) to work, and realizing where I was going wrong. I have downloaded all 11 iso's of (SID), burned them and am going to try the installition. Sooo lets see if I can trash that part of my system. Good luck to me and I will post up if it works.
You should have just downloaded the FIRST ISO ... then installed it and then you could rely on the great apt-get ... I did a install of Woody BTW and THEN upgraded to sid using a customized /etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get dist-upgrade :-)
Markus, you may be right, but I got and used em, install went smooth, except for 2 little problems. 1. no sound, can't find any information about soundcard (SB16 pci 128 card) and 2. when i went to log back in, it won't let me. seems to have lost or changed all my passwords. Overall I think it went well. Not bad for a super newbie,,,,,
Alittle update here. OK after deleting my password files and copying the same files from my other debian install, I was able to log in again. So much for that. Now any ideas on how to get my sound to work? I would post my /proc/pci file here, but it's a blank page. Running cat/proc/pci gets me a bash=command not found. Anyone? The original error was; unable to start sound server /dev/dsp not found, continuing with null output.
