Missing libaudit.so.0 workaround on hppa lifimage/debian-ports install

Hiya folks,

This may be a little lengthy, and an odd solution, but it worked to debootstrap 2 different machines here in the last couple days.

The problem was.. when you would get to the point in the lifimage install where you had to chroot your /mnt/destroot directory to run the passwd utility to set the root password, it would error out with a missing libaudit.so.0 library. I'll try to keep this as simple as possible for those just trying this out on their hardware for the first time, and once things get smoothed out at debian-ports.org, it most likely won't be necessary anymore.

1. Get your latest lifimage and burn it to a CD, here: http://ftp.parisc-linux.org/debian-ports/unstable-boot-image/lifimage

2. Follow the instructions at: http://wiki.parisc-linux.org/Debian_Ports_Installation up to the point where you have to chroot to /mnt/destroot to set your root password.

3. *Before* you chroot, use nano to edit your /mnt/destroot/etc/apt/sources.list file to include the parisc-linux.org repository (deb http://ftp.parisc-linux.org/debian-ports/debian unstable main)

4. Now, chroot /mnt/destroot...

5. Since you're ch-rooted to the main file system, you can now run the apt utilities to do what you need to, but before you do, you must get the gpg keys for debian-ports.org before it will work; something like this..

6. gpg --recv-keys 1C466F272FF7A9F4 --keyserver http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian

7. gpg --export --armor 2FF7A9F4 | apt-key add -

8. Run apt-get update to refresh the package lists

9. Run apt-get upgrade (you'll get some unmet dependencies)

10. Run apt-get -f install (this fixes them)

11. Run apt-get update again

12. Run apt-get upgrade *again* (this pulls in the rest of the upgraded packages from both sources.

13. Now... you should be able to set your root password successfully!

14. Type 'exit' to get out of the chroot.

15. Use nano to edit /mnt/destroot/etc/hostname to give your machine a name.

16. Follow through with the rest of the installation and get your latest kernel for your architecture, palo, openssh-server, etc. Don't forget to set your links in /mnt/destroot/boot/ as described in the instructions and follow the palo setup to the letter. Reboot and your machine should boot to a login prompt. Login as root, and you're off!

Sidenotes: I ran into an issue on both machines where the primary network interface (usually eth0) wouldn't start on it's own and I had to add the following to /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug eth0

iface eth0 inet dhcp

Edit this to point to your primary network interface.
After that my network came up automatically at each boot/reboot.

Here's the current results of my labors over the last few days:

http://landcomp.net:884 (the J6750 workstation with our development website and soon to be buildd server)
