REPOST: where is rpc.bootparamd?
Sorry to insist, but it is very urgent, and besides, maybe i was not very
Thanks a lot!
Dear Debian users,
I'm installing Debian Linux 1.3.1 the hard way, package by package, floppy by
floppy. Yes, i'm a masochist! :-) But it is very instructive, since i have
never installed any Linux in my life. :-( The PC i'm trying to do this is a
dusty 486, w/o any network connections and w/o a CD-ROM.
I'd like to make it run LAM MPI, a message-passing environment for workstation
networks, in single node mode. LAM MPI needs some TCP/IP services that i tried
to provide with the packages netbase and netstd. The fact is it complains about
a missing /usr/bin/rpc.bootparamd. Since i couldn't find it in any package, i
guess it is in the installation packages; possibly a misinformed answer to an
installation question prevented from being installed. However, i don't know
which is the package that rpc.bootparamd belongs to, and wouldn't like to
install everything again, for obvious reasons. :-)
So, my two questions are:
1) is the above exposition true? Does rpc.bootparamd really lie in some base
package that belongs to the installation?
2) how can i install it w/o having to reinstall everything i have in my dusty
and trusty 486 computer?
BTW two hurrahs for Debian Linux:
1) Debian is really easy to install. Maybe even easier than Windows 95. And
has more intelligent installer, i'm sure.
2) The dusty and trusty 486 was not a good computer to run Win95, but it had its
revival: it runs Linux very fast!
I thank you in advance!
