Moving from slackw. to debian, also iso-latin problems
I have just installed debian 0.91 having prev. used slackware
0.99.15 for about a month. I have a good feeling about debian but of
course I'm having some problems.
#Comments on the installations (things that need better doc.)
Transfered the distibution to my ext2 part. running slackware.
Used dd /dev/fd0 <filename> bs=16k to write base floppies.
Copied the rootfilesystem(/) of slackware to /allfiles.oldroot.
Booted from floppie bootdisk.
Mounted hard disk ext2 part.
Removed all rootfilesystem structure except /allfiles.oldroot.
Excecuted dinstall. (!! options reg. hd part. and fs not used)
Booted from bootfloppie and edited /etc/lilo.conf.
Excecuted /etc/lilo/install to reconfigure lilo.
Changed dpkg script not to (re)mount ext2 fs.
Used dpkg to install packages from /allfiles.oldroot/......
(I had to recompile my kernel, two devices assigned same IRQ.)
Booted up from hd and here I am.
#We should write a HOWTO for this process.
#dinstall and dpkg should be changed to support this process.
#Problems with Icelandic
I cant get all icelandic chars. on the console.
Some programs don't work with 8bit chars (emacs,elm,talk..)
Programs that support iso-latin like (Lynx,Gopher) don't.
I have a keymap (ice-latin.map) that seems to work.
#If someone has a solution or a lead for me please help!
Thanks for Debian and future help,
