GSOC 2016 : Week 1 23/05/2016 - 29/05/2016
23rd: Day 1
Got a new hard disk and made a secondary backup before changing from Ubuntu to Jessie.
Tried to fix the error at the end of task 1 by finding a Jessie back-port source and checking Ubuntu sources but no avail, can't find a similar package.
24th: Day 2
Downloaded Jessie iso and made a live USB.
Installed Jessie, software install failed had to re-do it.
25th: Day 3
Fixed dual boot grub and a few basic package installations
Worked on task 1 again. Rebooted system after failed software update (unexpected power outage for a few minutes during update) to find the dreaded blue screen. :(.
26th: Day 4
Serious problem with Debian installation. Think the iso file is corrupted.
After installation, trying to install firefox and a few multimedia plugins is going very badly, twice
Dealing with the ‘Light blue screen of doom’, nothing helps
Kernel IP routing table has been wiped! (How? No idea.. )
Fedora still working, no problem, so tried to free the space by Debian for reinstallation, but nope, tmp will get corrupted.
27th: Day 5
Tried installation again with another mirror. Nope, still no Gnome login screen.
Booted a backup fedora and downloaded the Debian image all over again and made the usb live again.
Installation with new image. YES! SUCCESS!
28th: Day 6
Add extra (non free, contrib, testing sources)
Update & Upgrade software
Install all the applications, and required packages like LAMP server, etc..
Dual Boot with Fedora
