RE: Need some guidance on a IBM G40

I recommend to you start again from the start but with Debian Sid or
Sarge, and not update the Debian
3.0r2 that I suppose is the Debian Woody. The problem is that in my
experiences, the upgrade is not always
do it for all, and probably you never will know which packages wasn't
upgrade because you have the old ones.

In the case that you still want to upgrade, did you do the base-config
stage ??, any way, my suggest is do
the upgrade as soon as possible.

Subject: Need some guidance on a IBM G40


As a debian newbie I would like to give Woody a go on my newly acquired
IBM G40. P4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM and 60GB HDD.

I resized the NTFS partition put a basic Debian system (3.0r2) on and I
am back at a command prompt.

I haven't tried out X server or anything and I searched the Net for some
hints and the things I found are more a 'finished' installation for
advanced users without any further details. It seems like I need
XFree86 4.3.0 - I am running a bare system with kernel 2.4.18 coming
with the woody and also 9 Sid CDs (2004 July 3 version) from a friend.

What should I do next? compile a kernel? Or do a dist upgrade? I am
really lost here. Any help will be much appreciated.
