Hi, I'm trying to migrate from RedHat to Debian and face out with few problems. I'll be glad to resolve them with your help. Question about dpkg: 1) dpkg is great, but I cannot figure out one simple/usefull procedure. Let's assume I install one package and have file /usr/bin/my. Is is possible to figure out using dpkg or similar tool to which package /usr/bin/my belong to. On RedHat I just invoke rpm -qf/usr/bin/my and get back package name.
Fram the man page: dpkg -L | --listfiles package ... List files installed to your system from package.
2) Is it possible to check status of installed software, what has been changed from original package, etc. On RedHat it is rpm -V <package>
Not sure what you are asking here.
Questions about kernel: This is very weird, but I can't get cdrom working with my custom kernel. Here what I did. apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.22 apt-get install kernel-patch-2.4.22 unpack kernel, applied debian patches
The kernel source from the Debian archive already has the Debian patches applied.
(/usr/src/kernel-patch/all/2.4.22/apply/debian), then applied other patches, in particular swsuspend. Then I configure my kernel as necessary with config from either RedHat or Debian, The only basic difference I made is instead of compiling as modules CONFIG_IDE, CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE, CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDISK I put then to be compiled into kernel. Well, install kernel and got surprise that mounting cdrom I have "can't read superblock". Any ideas?
What mount options are you using?
Question about configuration: Where the natural place to put my own scripts while booting to Debian. On RedHat it was /etc/rc.d/rc.local What is equivalent on Debian?
Just put your script in /etc/init.d/ and symlink it to whatever runlevel directories you need (like /etc/rc2.d/)
Where correctly put aliases for modules, there so many config file for modules on Debian?
Either in /etc/modules.conf or in a file in /etc/modutils/ (it depends on your setup).
About runlevels, what the meaning of 2,3,4,5 runlevels on Debian. On RedHat 3 is equivalent to 2 on Debian?
Basically, butyou can customize them.
Thank you, Valentine.
