As i've posted before I'm a windows guy trying to find his
way in the debian
world, my linux experience is limited!
I wanted to
apt-get a piece of software which was in the lenny repo not etch
so i added
the source. when i tried to apt-get it, it said that the
not be met. I read that i should do apt-get -f to fix
this and i ended up
with half of lenny installed and lots of broken things.
so i ran the
distro-upgrade command to try and get some consistency and now
i seem to be
running lenny, not quite what i wanted!
its running ok but even though i
kept my smb.conf for some reason 1 of my
samba shares works fine and the
other 2 dont at all and so now i cant get at
a load of my data. If i could
fix this i would probably be happy but im
thinking i need to just bite the
bullet and reinstall debian.
How do i go about reinstalling? do i need to
revert to the thecus rom or can
i reinstall debian another way? I have a 10GB
raid1 root partition and the
rest are data partitions so i would like to know
if i can reinstall whilst
keeping my data safe.
any help would be
really great cos i dont know what to do from
