Am 16. August 2003 wird Debian 10 Jahre alt. Dafür gibts von
LinuxLand als Special eine
Rettungs-CD. Das Image dazu kann man sich das rettcd.iso
runterladen, alternativ holt man sich von
LinuxLand die gepresste CD für 5 Euro.
Die Paketliste steckt in der Readme mit drin.
Sorry to all the guys/girls that dont speak German. Main Target of
this Image are the German Users, so the Readme File and the "Welcome
Text" inside the Image are german only. But thats the only real german
stuff, so you can still use it without (big) problems. Simply download
- It doesnt work with Nvidia nforce2 chipset. No IDE-detection and
no network. IDE-detection would be possible, but read the rest of this
paragraph. Network wont ever be possible, you need a binary-only and
thus non-free driver. I dont support this stupid idea, binary-only, so
i wont ever include network support for nforce2 crap. Sorry but kick
the brainless Nvidia guys. For IDE: I had to decide if i want the
latest kernel or if i want to be able to boot that thing from a disk -
latest kernel is too big for that. (Today you can simply dd the
boot.img from CD to Floppy and you are able to boot a system that
cant boot from CD-ROM). Maybe i change that in a later release - if i
ever make another release.
- It may hang on Laptops. I got some reports from Laptops that
work, some from Laptops that doesnt work. If it hangs it seems it
reports "cardmgr: Card Services release does not match" -
whatever error i made here. Unfortunately i dont have a Laptop with
pcmcia-stuff (i think it has todo with this thing) so I cant test
this part. Sorry. Somebody told me that this always happens if the
Laptop has one pcmcia and one smartcard slot.
- Yes, root and the user rettcd both have a password. I dont know
if anyone ever needs one of them, but they are debian and rettcd.
- Somebody said he really wants grub which is a thing i havent put
on this CD. Never used, simply missed that thing. :)
- I should kick mdadm and install raidutils2 instead.
- Another one wants debootstrap on this CD.
I dont know yet if I ever build another release that fixes the known
errors and enhances the Image. Maybe. If there is enough demand...
