View Full Version : Apt-get Help.

Is there some apt-get rollback, or some way to fix this: I rebooted a bunch of times, and it is still there, but when I login as any user (root, the default, any other) it displays:
CD-ROM (cdrom)
CD-ROM (cdrom1)
DVD (dvd)
DVD (hdc)
Floppy (fd0)
Hard Disk (hda1)
Hard Disk (hda2)
Hard Disk (hda6)
Hard Disk (hda7) in "media:/"
Also if I am loged in as any user it will not recognize any storage media.

Lets ask the question another way. If you have a system and you do a lot of updates, and have finite hard disk space, so you really expect an operating system to keep all of the old programs, settings and other information that would be needed to "rollback" to a previous version? That seems crazy to me. Why don't you just go back to one of your backups? What, no backups? Well, if your system data isn't important enough to you to have backed it up, why would you think it's important to us? I would have though that you would have made a backup, particularly before doing an apt-get, since so many of us warn users against installing Knoppix because we know that apt-get will break things (http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/HD_Install_Warning_not_to_do_it).
