video mode solved. cpp/gcc solved. kernel, X11?
Was: "Remarks, installing rex from scratch"
: 1) Don't give an entry
: vga=[any number other than normal]
: in /etc/lilo.conf and launch lilo with that. It will
: completely confuse dselect, and nobody is aware of this :-(
Video modes are ok, forget about vga=... settings, use now
a resolution of 132x60. I was confused about learning
dselect, especially with cycling through the sorting options.
There is a dependency problem with cpp/gcc. gcc depends on cpp and
replaces cpp! So I
a) installed cpp, purged gcc;
b) put cpp on hold and installed gcc.
==================== kernel sources
The kernel sources aren't in rex, but dselect/dpkg didn't
complain about that. It claims everything all right and
nothing happened. Installed it per Hand from buzz, saying
"dpkg -i ...".
The fight with xlib6-dev_3.2-1.deb, xlib and
xlib6_3.2-1.deb is a mess. Did get through to start a SVGA
server, with installing those per hand and setting them to
"hold". They are "new unclassified without section" (?)
Common warnings ignored:
. More than one copy of package xbase has been unpacked
. in this run ! Only configuring it once.
which came for many packages in the past.
Then this one:
. dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of xpaste:
. xpaste depends on xlibraries; however:
. Package xlibraries is not installed.
. Package xlib which provides xlibraries is not installed.
. dpkg: error processing xpaste (--install):
. dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
. Setting up xbase (3.2-1) ...
Hope to get help or provide input for debugging at least.
