I tried upgrading my SLug to Squeeze using Martin Michlmayr's tarball. I guess everything
went OK (I have installed Debian a few times now). After reboot the SLug goes through the
flashing led things, switches all Leds off except the ethernet led, flashes a few times, the
HDD is accessed a few times and that it, nothing else.
In the past I had this problem with discrepancies between the flashed data and the partitions
on the HDD, using UUIDS or labels or devices in FSTAB did not fit to what had been flashed.
>> The root partition has to be the 2nd primary partition (i.e. /dev/sdb2 in this example) since the root device is hard-coded in the ramdisk.
If I understand correctly, the bootable partition must be the second one, other than that?
Here is my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda2 / ext2 errors=remount-ro 0 1
#/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda3 /home ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda4 none swap sw 0 0
/boot stuff is all under / after I untarred the tarball.
Here is the ouput from fdisk:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 1 12 96358+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 * 13 523 4104607+ 83 Linux

Disk mounted on another box of course.
Thanks in advance
