This is the steps I used to get mine "9 times tried and working" to work properly. Use commonsense and fix extra problems if needed.
After "equo world --upgrade 5" or "equo hop 5" depending what works for you, you would have to fix a few things.
GCC changes to 4.4.0 so you will have to
and then use correct info for
Code: Select all
gcc-config -f i686......somethign...something
You would also need to get python to update to latest.
Code: Select all
something 2.4 to 2.6 something if working correctly.
You would likely need to update or reinstall the nvidia or ati drivers to be correctly linked to new python.
It would be good to
and finally install the latest kernel 2.6.30 or later as is available.
Now before restart make sure to deptest and libtest to make sure all is well and working properly.
Make sure you have ( openresolv dhcp and ifconfig iproute ndiswrapper wpa_supplicant ) installed should you need to get a text root login network working.
Check grub.conf as well as /etc/mtab and /etc/fstab if all is well reboot and hold your thumbs.
If you end up with a failed gui desktop start "root text login screen" then just get the internet working and re-install nvidia or ati drivers.
Someone else might post proper
options to get the xorg.conf to work properly and recognize the correct pci dev to the correct video card for xorg.conf .
This is the worst case scenario to fix problems that could or could not be and fix anything that should be working correctly.
It would be a good idea but not necessary needed to reinstall the whole world against new python , gcc + new kernel for 100% working properly linux. This is a good way to do it but the development team might have fixed this or cheated past already.
This could end up with 1355+ packages downloaded so confirm with Joost / development team about this or how to cheat past this 1355+ packages without having to re-download what is already there.
Best of luck.
Trouble shooting hardware:
For more detailed output of hardware run " lspci -vv " note speeds for video card to slot as well as cpu to ram.
Hope this helps.
