Your 3.9.0 64 bit SMP kernel has been running well for the last few days.


After manually bringing eth0 up I was able to run "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade" and "apt-get dist-upgrade".

"apt-get dist-upgrade" falls over with the error(s) that I have posted below. Any more ideas?
insserv: There is a loop between service rmnologin and mountnfs if started
insserv:  loop involving service mountnfs at depth 7
insserv:  loop involving service networking at depth 6
insserv:  loop involving service mountnfs-bootclean at depth 9

insserv:  loop involving service nfs-common at depth 9
insserv: Starting stop-bootlogd depends on rmnologin and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

I just changed "# Required-Start:" and/or # Required-Stop:" lines in /etc/init.d/stop-bootlogd and/or /etc/init.d/rmnologin and deleted the other server.
Not sure if that's the best approach, but it worked.

By the way,
	debootstrap --arch=hppa --no-check-gpg --include=libstdc++6-4.7-dev unstable /path/to/destdir  http://ftp.parisc-linux.org/debian-ports/debian
works now nicely.

Is there a remote possibility that an updated netboot.iso or regular install .iso's might be created in the near future to eliminate the need for having to deal with trying to manually update the running kernel?

I tried installing the new 3.9 kernel in a currently running Lenny system and not quite sure what I did wrong, but I can't get past the boot IPL now. I checked /boot after I extracted the kernel according to the instructions, and it showed the new kernel there, yet when I re-booted, it hung before I could interact with the IPL and take out the initrd line, etc. This is getting pretty frustrating for me and I don't really have the know-how to get back into it otherwise. Fortunately, I backed up the small site I was hosting on it before I started playing upgrade games. I could put the straight Lenny distro back on it, and reload everything, but if I can get it up to a more modern/stable kernel and packages, I'd like to do that.

This is on a HP J6750 workstation with dual 875 mhz. CPU's, btw. (64 bit of course)
