Slink update from hamm
I got my cheapbytes debian 2.1 4 cd set and tried to upgrade. I

installed it. I ran the apt-cdrom program to set up the
/etc/apt/sources.list file. Then I ran apt-get update. (I which I
remembered to run the loging script first!) I got some dependancy
problems and was told to use the -f switch. So I tried that. (I had
ALREADY upgraded to use new libc from slink via ftp, and hadn't gotten
the lib6c-dev, which was the complaint). I then tried apt-get ugrade
and had the same problem, so I added the -f switch. Now I was asked
to install the first CD (binary #1) which I did. I got a long list of
wrong cd messges asking for cd #2, and a message that cd swapping was
not surported so to try the 'fix missing' switch several times. But I
got the same results. (I also had to make a sim-link between /cdrom
and my cdrom's real mount point as this was not carried over from the
I should really try this again with the logging script running so I can
have the exact error messages, but perhaps this sounds familiar to
Amateur Radio, when all else fails!
