I'm trying to install 3.6 after my HD install of 3.4 bit the dust after trying to put the latest version of Gimp on: yes folks, I got pangoed!

So, I'm trying to put 3.6 on with a 2.6 kernel using knoppix installer (I'd have much sooner used knx-hdinstaller, but it simply isn't there anymore).

I've 3 HDs. hdd is simply an old SuSE install which I have lying about in case I need to grab stuff off it. hda has multi-media stuff on it, but no OS. It's ext3, although sometimes Linux disagrees. hdc1 has/had everything except my /home partition on it. /home is hdc3.

So, naturally, I want to install 3.6 onto hdc1.

I figure we put Lilo onto hdc1 and boot from that, eh?

Before anything, I run fsck:

fsck /dev/hdc1
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/dev/hdc1: clean, 127879/1831424 files, 606396/3662812 blocks

fsck /dev/hdc3
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/dev/hdc3 has been mounted 68 times without being checked, check forced.
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information

/dev/hdc3: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
/dev/hdc3: 61602/13189120 files (3.9% non-contiguous), 21567067/26370697 blocks


OK, on with the show!


su

knoppix-installer

Choose the beginner mode, edit /root/.knoconf with vim (as su) to use grub rather than Lilo.

Ideas are welcome -- now I'll reboot and see what the results are! I'm not optimistic!

Ah, despite all the pessimism, this time it worked just fine. Strangely, it's booting through Lilo, but what the hell. Now, all I have to do is mount /home, get rid of user knoppix, apt-get update && apt-get install all the multimedia stuff (anyone know the url for maralliat?) and bob's yer uncle.
