Re: hamm (fresh) install considerations
I'm considering a fresh hamm install, however I haven't found much
information about installing hamm fresh. I presume that bash and libc
would be non-issues (at least for installation), but beyond that, what
can I expect, in terms of errors -- both quantity and complexity?
There aren't any hamm install disks yet AFAIK. You have to install
bo, then upgrade to hamm.
Also, I've always installed debian with cdrom and this time I want to
start with a hard drive install, but I only want to download selected
packages, then follow up with ftp. Will dselect panic if many packages
in the list of available packages aren't on my hard drive? If so,
what's a good way to generate a list of available packages, or is this
a bad thing?
I think this will work. But remember that upgrading to hamm replaces
every package, not just a few, due to the fundamental glibc changes.
This means that you end up downloading hundreds of megabytes for large
