So I am back to trying to get woody to work.
I get to the point where it unpacks the basedebs.tar file. I end up with
a directory on my drive called /var and all the files from the
basedebs.tar are in it.
But then it tries to find Packages and says it can't find it.
Is there a way to manually install everything in the /var directory that
came form basedebs.tar? There are a bunch of .deb files. Is there a deb
application or something to extract the debs?
I can't find one anywhere on my ram or hard disk. Please send it if you
can as a gz file.
If it tries to find Packages.gz while you pointed it to basedebs.tar,
I'd jus try and download both, whatever the documentation says.
P.S. There's no need to cc me on replies to the list. I'll read and
reply on the list just as quick.
