RE: can't get install to work
Actually, I was being rather brain-dead .I've had a nasty case of
bronchitis for the last week and its hard to concentrate for more than
15 minutes at a time or even see cleary after an hour). Probably not the
wisest time to try and learn a new OS .The last time I ran Linux it was
redhat 7 and I was limited to apache, postgres, and php.
I don't need to run emchain at all! Somehow I got the mistaken
impression that I had to build the toolchain when, in fact, emsetup had
already installed what I needed. I spent the better of three days (at
least the parts where I was actually awake) installing and uninstalling
linux and emdebian for no reason other than foggy-brain-itis (noob
linux'ers syndrome). Its not all a waste though as I learned a LOT in
And thanks for making Emdebian in the first place!

> I decided to try emdebian and after installing the tools I ran the apt update to pull some files. During that process I also upgrade some host files and after some time I noticed I'm pulling sid repository when it should not be. I looked at my sources list and they are pointed to the correct location (primarily testing) and so did the apt-cross source list. Nonetheless it was still pulling from unstable and haven't figured out how that happened. I eventually purged my system of the emdebian tools and try to get it back to where it was. I'm still having problems with my system sound and I'm not sure when I'll know what went wrong with it.
