I'm sorry. I'm giving up. I cannot get any of this information. I'm to good
damn stupid to run Linux, at lesat debian Linux. I need an easier thing as
it seems. I have tried to get all of this information but I get nowhere. I
can run strace but that doesn't help me very much since I can't get it out
as a file, it probably did but I can't find it. Running bug does no good,
since it refuses to run when I'm logged on as root and I just can't
remember how to create another user that has some priveliges to run it.
Finally, I can't remember how to check how much space my harddrive has left
So, I guess I'll just reformat this harddrive and never ever try again, I'm
to frustrated with this.
All I can say right now is that I have installed slink on amiga, with the
newest disks in slink. What version apt has I don't remember but I haven't
installed or updated anything. Oh, I did install apt because I thought I
didn't have it, but I found out as I installed it that I did, but that was
the same version so I didn't think more of it.
Well, this is what I can tell you.
Some people hope to achieve immortality through their works or their
children. I would prefer to achieve it by not dying.
