Now that I am up (help now please)
Weekend spent messing with dselect and aptitude. I now have a
usable-but-not-quit-comfortable system going.
1. I keep getting a 'fake start-stop daemon' error when I try to shut
down (init 0 from root). It keeps scrolling across the screen and I
have to shut off manually--which forces fsck the next boot-up (long time
on a 60 G drive!). How can I fix?
2. Can't get wvdial to connect under user--have to use root. I've
tried to chmod stuff, but I must be missing something because I keep
getting an error 2 from pppd. Fix?
3. What script/file can I create in my user directory so I can control
what window manager I am running? (gnome, kde, icewm). Currently, I
have to run g/k/x(dm) from root.
Thank you for your patience...
BTW--I love aptitude, once I figured out how to use it!
dpkg-reconfigure, though, is giving me problems; it either won't run or
give me a 'laptop fan' error (BTW, I'm not on a laptop!).
