Re: Problems booting Debian 3.1 on Acer 4100
I had the same problem on my laptop. What you have to do is reboot off the
net install cd, then let it detect your hard drive. Then you need to mount
your system just like it normally is under /mnt. Then do "chroot /mnt"
without the quotes. Then run aptitude and remove hotplug and discover, and
any libraries not needed (press SHIFT-M on the libs section of the installed
part.) and that should let you boot. Note, do not install these tools back,
they never seem to work on laptops running debian.
They work flawlessly on my Thinkpad R51 (Debian Sarge).
