I managed to get Woody installed using one disk. But I have no idea
how to configure things. I ran through the ppp configuration, but the
error message ran by so fast that I couldn't read it. I didn't know
what to put into the apt sources file, which I am guessing is where to
put whatever site to get the .deb packages from. I would manually
compile things onto the system, or try to, but I don't have gcc, so in
my "inexperience" I didn't think I could run a configure script.
at install time, I put video=ofonly into the kernel options, so it would
be passed at every boot. When I tried to initially set up X and stuff
it told me to input the first Disk and push enter, Which I never took it
out so I just hit enter, but that kept giving me a sector error, but
that may be the CD-RW I used. When I installed I put in the kernel
modules to install support for minix file system, DOS, HFS, and I think
NFS, so I should be able to mount my OS X partition and get source and
manually downloaded .deb files.
That brings up another question. I worked in and on fink which has an
apt-get package manager based on debian. How close is this
resemblance? More importantly can I put whatever deb files into a
directory for cache and install it? Within fink I think it was
I left the modem at the default, because I didn't know what to do. is
there some documentation I can look at to learn this stuff?
