That is a good question. I thought I went through
the /cdrom/upgrade/install.sh before I tried to upgrade to hurd_20050513-4.
In my experience with Debian systems and dpkg installations, is that dpkg
is very accurate. So I question the difficulty when hurd_20050507-1 is in
operation and end up in trouble installing hurd_20050513-4 and libc0.3. I
think I made a mistake somewhere.
Anyway, my guess on the fsck trouble ended up accurate. My hurd partition
ext2fs.static was dumped by the Sarge fsck fix. Maybe I need to keep track
of where the next ext2fs.static is located so I will say NO to the fsck fix.
But will that really do any good in saving my hurd boot? Maybe I should take
my hurd partition out of my Sarge /etc/fstab so the Sarge fsck does not even
look at the hurd partition.
